About Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, The Inventor of Email And Systems Scientist


Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, the Inventor of Email and MIT-trained Systems Scientist, holds four degrees from MIT, is a world-renowned systems scientist, inventor and entrepreneur. He is a Fulbright Scholar, Lemelson-MIT Awards Finalist, India’s First Outstanding Scientist and Technologist of Indian Origin, Westinghouse Science Talent Honors Award recipient, and a nominee for the U.S. National Medal of Technology and Innovation.

His love of medicine and complex systems began in India when he became intrigued with medicine at the age of five as he observed his grandmother, a farmer and healer in the small village of Muhavur in South India, apply Siddha, India’s oldest system of traditional medicine, to heal and support local villagers. These early experiences inspired him to pursue the study of modern systems science, information technology and eastern and traditional systems of medicine to develop an integrative framework linking eastern and western systems of medicine.

In 2003, Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai developed CytoSolve®, a scalable computational platform for modeling the cell by dynamic integration of molecular pathways models. He has started several successful companies. EchoMail was a product of his research on using pattern recognition with email technology. General Interactive, LLC. is a venture fund that incubates, mentors and funds new startups. He serves as Executive Director of the International Center for Integrative Systems (ICIS), a non-profit research and education foundation, located in Cambridge. In 2014, Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai chaired a committee that helped evolve standards for the emerging and fast-growing natural products industry. Clean Food Certified is the home of this certification program.
