Biography

I am Senior Lecturer in Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering Research Division and EPSRC Research Fellow. I received B.Tech (Electrical) from Kurukshetra University (India), M.Tech. (Electrical) from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (India), and Ph.D. from Italian Institute of Technology, Genoa (Italy), and University of Genoa (Italy). In past, I worked NSIT Delhi (India), Italian Institute of Technology, Genoa (Italy), Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento (Italy), and Univ. of Cambridge (U.K.).

I am Senior member of IEEE. Currently, I am on the Editorial Boards of IEEE Transactions on Robotics and IEEE Sensors Journal. I am the Guest Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue on ‘Printable Sensors and Systems’ (to be published in 2014). I was the Guest Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue on ‘Flexible Sensors and Sensing Systems’ (Oct 2013) and IEEE Transactions on Robotics Special Issue on Robotic Sense of Touch (June 2011). I am member of IEEE Sensors Council AdCom (Administrative Committee), representing IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.

I am EPSRC Fellow and received Marie Curie Fellowship in past. I was awarded with the University Gold Medal for securing First Class First Position in the University and received best paper awards twice in the IEEE sponsored conferences. My publications include - more than 90 papers in Journals and peer reviewed international conferences, 2 patents, 1 book (Robotic Tactile Sensing – Technologies and System), and 7 book chapters.

Research Interests

My current multidisciplinary research interests include Flexible and Printable Electronics, Electronic Skin, Robotic Tactile Sensing, Micro/Macroelectronics and System Integration.

My research style is to enhance understanding of the fundamental issues, on one hand, with an orientation towards application on the other – basically, orienting science and technology towards bringing solutions to the society. My vision is to develop high-performance and cost-effective electronics and sensing systems on flexible substrates to enable tools such as electronic skin (also known as tactile skin, smart skin) that are of burgeoning interest in applications such as robotics, prosthetics, healthcare and surgical instrumentation.

Expertise

My area of expertise include Micro/Nanofabrication, Solid-State Sensors, Robotic Tactile Sensing, and Flexible/Printable Electronics.
