Surgical Robotics Mechanical Design CAD


Semi-Automatic Micro Cell Injection                                                                                                                 Oct 2016 – Oct 2017

Worked as a Team Lead Mechanical on the Micro Cell Injection project. My key responsibilities are to manage and guide the team of mechanical engineers towards the design, analysis and manufacturing of novel micro manipulators.

Laparoscopic Surgical Simulator                                                                                                                       Apr 2014 – Mar 2015

My initial responsibilities were to design, analyze and simulate the proof-of-concept.  For practical implementation, we closely worked with a team of medical doctors and successfully commercialized the product.

Tele Surgical Robotic Platform for Laparoscopic Surgery                                                                              Feb 2013 Apr 2014

Project Tele Surgical Robot and Simulator (TSRS) was a government funded research project. My responsibilities was to Design, Model, Simulate and Manufacture the 6 DOF Surgical Robotic Arm. It was a complex mechatronic project and needed close coordination with multidisciplinary team.
