Skin-Interfacing Sensors and Soft Robotic Systems based on Nanocomposite Materials’

My research interests include wearable sensors for healthcare, advanced functional materials, bioinspired structures, electronic skins, and soft robotics. I and my team explore nanoscale materials and their nanocomposites for the design and manufacture of soft machines capable of sensing and actuation. I am very much looking forward to collaborating with scientists and clinicians interested in novel healthcare technologies, biomedical AI, advanced materials, computational mechanics, low-power wireless communication, and small-scale energy systems. My long-term vision is to develop low-cost, soft skin-interfacing, and multifunctional point-of-care devices for remote personalised healthcare monitoring. I am keen to develop multidisciplinary collaborative ideas and grant proposals.

‘Identifying molecular indicators of pathological processes with Raman Imaging’

We spectroscopists use the infrared region to obtain information about the chemical composition of a sample through the vibration of its chemical bonds. My research interest is to use vibrational spectroscopy to study biochemical and biological samples in a fast, cheap, and accurate way. I want to apply for a fellowship to develop a method to identify molecular indicators of pathological processes and diseases in clinical samples using Raman Imaging. I would love to collaborate with any researcher interested in new ways to classify their biological samples (cells, tissues, etc.) into good or bad, diseased or healthy, normal or impaired... and people with experience in image processing with AI.

‘Demystifying the biomolecules interactions with more-than-Moore CMOS devices’

My current work revolves around the detection of protein-peptide interactions using FET as a transducing device. I am also interested in using more-than-Moore CMOS devices to design novel sensors for various applications and enhance different figure-of-merits. This emerging field holds great promise for various applications, including biosensing, bioelectronics, and biomedical research. By leveraging the unique properties of biomolecules and the advancements in CMOS technology, we can explore new avenues for developing highly sensitive and efficient biosensors, biochips, and other biomedical devices. Moreover, I will try for fellowship opportunities in this domain and express my keen interest in collaborations to further advance our understanding and application of biomolecule interactions with more-than-Moore CMOS devices. I welcome feedback and the chance to connect with fellow researchers to develop a robust track record in this exciting field.
