I am a researcher at Ammachi Labs, the robotics, skill development and social empowerment research center at Amrita University.

My interests span across neurocognition, haptics, technology-enhanced learning and skill development and of late - teaching Maker Skills in schools. These have been the main theme of much of my work. I have over ten years of experience designing haptic simulators for vocational skill training, drones for search and rescue operations and a robotic system physical rehabilitation. The newest and most exciting work is creating resources and curriculum to teach product design, design thinking, tinkering and maker education in rural schools and to village children. I co-founded the 2nd Foundation Makerspace at Amrita University, India.

I also take the time to listen to my heart that compels me to also take care of wild animals such as eagles, owls, snakes, civets, jungle cats that need to be rescued or in need of attention owing to injuries.
