My research background can be broadly categorized into the field of electro-mechanical tap water hydraulic systems, active control of sound and vibration, and parametric array loudspeaker (PAL). But it was at MIT that this accumulated experience allowed me to design and construct a novel ultrasonic micropropulsive underwater robot, and also inspired a mosquito vector control collaborative project. Having a multidisciplinary interest in mechanical and electronics systems, I have also very recently ventured into building several circuit designs for energy harvesting technologies.
Having now built up a solid background in my field of multidisciplinary sensor technology for mechanical systems, I feel the time is right to assume a more central role in the academia by being a faculty member.
