About the Faculty

I joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at BITS Pilani, Goa, in October 2020. I am a translational researcher working in the field of Biomechanics, Assistive and Medical Devices. I hold a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and integrated MS-PhD specializing in Biomechanics and Design of Assistive Devices. My research focuses on investigating the physiological and biomechanical aspects of human gait, musculoskeletal disorders, and physical disability. The overarching goal is to assist people with walking gait impairments/physical disabilities/ musculoskeletal disorders using assistive technology and therapy. I am also a passionate teacher and enjoy interactions with young minds. I enjoy reading books, listening to music, and watching movies in my free time.
