I obtained an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Manipal University, India. Following which, I moved to the United States to pursue a masters in mechanical engineering from the University at Buffalo, NY.

I am currently associated with the Virtual Reality Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under Dr Thenkurussi Kesavadas. My dissertation is directed towards the development of a home based robotic rehabilitation system for stroke patients. I enjoy computer programming and developing user interfaces and experiences. I have a profound interest in machine learning and signal processing applications.
