I am a bioengineer, trained as a physicist. I develop bio-mimetic tissue models to advance our understanding of human pathophysiological conditions. Currently, I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University. I am working on building A.I. models to predict vasculopathies.
Previously, I have worked on developing a 3D-bioprinted Lung-on-Chip model, investigated Mycobacterium abscessus infection dynamics (at McKinney Lab, EPFL), and developed microfluidic tools for enabling low-cost point-of-care diagnostics (at Satapathi Lab, IIT Roorkee). I have co-founded the Lab-on-Chip systems student research group in IIT Roorkee, and a personalized nanofabrication startup ‘LabX Scientific’.
