PhD Student
Advanced Robotics
Research center

I’m a Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Leonardo De Mattos in the Biomedical Robotics Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology. I consider myself a biomedical roboticist who loves to constantly learn across several disciplines. I devote myself to working on medical devices since it is necessary to provide quality health care affordable to all life

My current research focuses on endoscopic OCT probe for minimally invasive surgeries. It involves developing an electromagnetic-based optical fiber scanner and a novel algorithm for noise reduction in endoscopic OCT images.

My previous experiences include developing medical deviceshumanoidlegged robot, and realtime streaming of audio, video, and PCL for telerobot.

Research Interest:

Areas: Mechatronics, Biomedical Optics, Digital Signal Processing, MEMS.

Applications: Endoscopic Imaging Devices, Medical Sensors and Actuators.
