On receiving his honour, Professor Edirisinghe said: “I am indebted to UCL and in particular to UCL Mechanical Engineering from where I have been able to rapidly propagate my research on healthcare and manufacturing internationally to a wide interdisciplinary audience. This has enabled me to get this honour.”
