 Graduate Research Student Profile:

After my Bachelors in Mechanical engineering I worked with a startup for few months, where we developed models for experiential learning. I joined as a masters student in 2016 at Indian Institute Technology Madras and started my research work in R2D2 lab (Rehabilitation Research and Device Development) which focuses in developing assistive technology at affordable prices. With an opportunity to collaborate and work in an environment that is dedicated to bio-mechanics I converted my master in to a joint PhD program under MIPA. Now I work with a research team under the supervision of Prof Marcus Pandy which is dedicated in solved interesting bio-mechanics questions.
