Dr. Ambati, hailing from India, underwent his initial training and education primarily in Engineering schools at Osmania University, India, and the University of South Florida, Tampa. Subsequently, he attained his doctoral degree in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences from the esteemed University of Texas at El Paso. Within the department of Kinesiology, Dr. Ambati adeptly instructs numerous courses encompassing Biomechanics, Motor Learning and Control, Motor Development across the Lifespan, and Principles of Human Movement. His research primarily centers around comprehending the pivotal role of vision in movement, while concurrently delving into motor control and motor learning in children affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Furthermore, he delves into the application of mechanical principles to refine motor skills, such as back squats, as part of his diverse research endeavors.
