ME: Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science

I received my B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in 2014. My bachelor’s thesis was on the design of muscle-like actuators. I am interested in bio-inspired mechanisms, morphology based control systems, and passive dynamic machines. I have worked on human throwing at NCBS, India, humanoid locomotion at TUHH, Germany, human arm kinematics and robotic simulation at EPFL, Switzerland, and soap film dynamics at OIST, Japan.
