I'm currently working as a Ph.D. student in the Locomotion in Biorobotic & Somatic Systems (LBASS) research group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS). In the recent past, I was working as a Sr. Research Engineer at the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS) (2016-19). Before this, I also worked as a Research Engineer at the NUS (2015-16), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India (2014-15). I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Gandhinagar, and IIT Kharagpur (2014) in collaboration with the University of Oxford (Institute of Biomedical Engineering), UK.
My research interests span from the study of cancer cell deformations, ultrasound therapeutics, bubble acoustics to the most recent advances in bio-assistive soft robotics, incorporating diverse fields such as mechanics of soft matter, deformable electronics and adaptive structures, bio-inspired design, smart materials, and flexible sensors.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
