Wayne State University, Detroit, MI CGPA: 3.84

Bachelor of Engineering (BE): Biomedical Engineering (August 2011 - April 2015)

Anna University, Chennai, India. CGPA: 3.34

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Research Assistant November 2016 – May 2018

Robotics and Rehabilitation Laboratory, Wayne State University

Worked on three ongoing projects, EMG controlled upper arm exoskeleton, EEG based drowsy driving monitoring system and Cost-effective brain computer interface-controlled robotic gripping system.

Conducted literature reviews and performed preparation procedures as required by the professor.

Hold a good knowledge on various biomedical sensors that is used to measure biological signals

Performed statistical and graphical analysis on physiological signals obtained.

Set up and monitored laboratory experiments, helped with general laboratory maintenance.

Senior Medical Coder, Intelenet Global Services, India September 2015 – May 2016

Supervised a team of six, solved problems as needed and trained freshers.

Sustained 100% quality throughout the work and was promoted to senior level within 4 months.

Biomedical service engineer, Apollo Specialty Hospitals, India May 2015 - August 2015

Provided first level service and support to equipment, especially radiology equipment’s like CT, MRI, X-Ray machines and critical care equipment’s such as ventilators, anaesthesia machines, heart lung machines, thereby reducing the equipment downtime.

Collaborated with technicians in Cath Lab to install the Artis Zee from Siemens.

Maintained medical records and authorization forms for the medical equipment.

Biomedical engineer, Apollo Hospitals, India May 2014 – July 2014

Contributed to the setting of Cardiac theatre in the hospital.

Coordinated with service contractors for equipment validation, maintenance, calibration, and installation of service documentation.

Provided training for related facility staff on the maintenance and utilization of equipment.

In-plant training, Vijaya Hospitals, India December 2013

Serviced ICU, NICU, Diagnostic, OR, Emergency, Laboratory, Ward, Blood bank, Labour room equipment, Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation equipment, etc.

ACADEMIC PROJECTS

Design of cost effective brain computer interface-controlled robotic gripping system January 2018

Worked on robotic grippers to support paralytic patients and performed literature survey on existing systems.

Concluded on using NeuroSky with Arduino to obtain the raw EEG signals and coded in Arduino software to extract the attention values.

Image reconstruction in CT, MRI, and Clutter noise removal in Ultrasound December 2017

A signal processing experiment to remove the clutter noise from ultrasound images and perform the reconstruction techniques for CT, MRI, and Ultrasound.

Gained practical knowledge in image processing (reconstruction) algorithm (back projection) using MATLAB

Developed an algorithm for clutter noise rejection in Ultrasound using high pass filter with threshold.

Drowsy driving monitoring system using EEG signals November 2017

Assisted in developing a system that can be used to monitor the EEG response from hand and brain when the person is driving to indicate the drowsy or alert state of the driver.

Performed the analysis part of the system, derived the relationship between each sub-bands of brain waves and the hand recorded EEG. Concluded that hand recorded EEG can depict the exact brain wave patterns.This project has been applied for patent and is still in review.

EMG controlled upper arm exoskeleton May 2017

An exoskeleton model that mimics the user’s hand movement using EMG signals from the user.

Worked on CREO software to design the upper arm exoskeleton.

Design of haptic glove for a VR system April 2017

A glove that senses the feel of touch in a virtual reality environment.

Developed a haptic glove with Arduino, flex sensors and servo motors to detect an object and lock the position of the fingers in that respective orientation.

Design and implementation of wearable gait mobilizer device May 2015

Designed a prototype using an accelerometer sensor and Arduino to assist hemiplegic patient in movement.

Gathered the knee flexion angles of hemiplegics and normal people from several hospitals. The difference in knee flexion angles is further processed using Arduino with help of servo motors for extra movement.

Considered as one of the best projects by my university and was awarded with funding.
