We are a team of young scientists and engineers working on the interface of engineering, biology, medicine, additive manufacturing, and machine learning to solve clinically relevant problems. Our current research focuses on design, simulation and fabrication of microsystems, sensors, transducers, electronic systems with an emphasis on early diagnosis of diseases. We also focus on developing innovative non-invasive technologies for detecting diseases. A parallel area of research focus is on developing smart biomedical devices by integrating novel sensors and machine learning techniques for application in clinics. Our lab collaborates with top team of clinicians in pediatrics, oncology, and cardiovascular diseases. We have a tie-up with the best medical institutes in the country and abroad for obtaining patient samples and identifying relevant existing clinical problems.
Dr. Chetan Singh Thakur
The central research focus of the NeuRonICS lab is to understand the principles of brain computation and to apply this understanding in electronic systems for building intelligent systems. Engineers have a lot to learn about computation from the brain, which has evolved over billions of years to solve difficult engineering problems. Efficient, parallel, low-power computation is a hallmark of the brain, and to be able to replicate this in electronic systems is one of the goals of the lab. Research interests of the lab span a broad range of subjects such as ASIC/FPGA VLSI design, analog IC design, brain-inspired algorithms, computational neuroscience, machine learning, and event-based sensors.
