    EDUCATION

    University of Houston (U of H), Houston, TX                 Aug 2012-Dec 2017

    Ph.D. in Motor Control (Space Life Sciences track) (GPA: 3.89/4)

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA                  2008 - 2010

    Masters of Science in Aeronautics & Astronautics (GPA: 4.90/5)

    Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, Mumbai, India                      2004 - 2008

    PROFESSIONAL & RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

    University of Houston, Houston, TX (Advisors: Dr. William Paloski & Prof. Pranav Parikh)                    Aug 2012-Dec 2017

    Dissertation: Investigated sensorimotor mechanisms underlying postural control using TMS and EEG. Also used machine learning techniques to identify what behavioral parameter can best predict cortical activation during challenging posture tasks which were carried out by healthy young participants with and without virtual lesion over the supplementary motor area. Results provide novel insights for the development of training modalities for populations with increased fall risks.

    Evaluated the effects of standing, locomotion exercise and artificial gravity during bed-rest on neuro-vestibular function.

    Modeled differences in joint motor control performance in rapid goal-directed aiming between upper and lower limbs. It was designed to serve as a ground control task for experiments which are being performed on the MARES system on the ISS.

    Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX

    Summer internship on wearable technologies (Advisor: Prof. Bijan Najafi)                                    June - Aug 2017                                                              

    Assisted in data analysis of phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of a custom ankle-foot orthosis device in elderly individuals with high risk of falls. My job was to help quantitatively assess physical activity level using an inertial motion sensor that participants wore over a span of two days in the beginning and the end of 6 months of intervention.

    Assisted in developing a decision tree algorithm to distinguish wear and non-wear times of a motion sensor.

    Neuroscience Lab, NASA JSC, Houston, TX (Lab rotation- Advisor: Dr. Ajitkumar Mulavara)              Aug 2014 – Aug 2016

    Evaluated the effects of galvanic stimulation of the vestibular system on balance and locomotion. Galvanic vestibular stimulation is pursued as a training modality to enhance adaptability to aid recovery after spaceflight.

    Developed a test for assessing somatosensory dependence during postural control. The information regarding an individual astronauts’ reliance on somatosensory information can be used to design efficient individualized training protocols to enable re-adaptation more rapidly after spaceflight.

    Assessed the role of somatosensory information for postural control after spaceflight.

    Airbus Defense and Space, Friedrichshafen, Germany

    Design of Short Arm Human Centrifuge (SAHC) for the International Space Station      (ISS)           Dec 2010 – Nov 2011

    An Improved Helmet Liner for Protection Against Blast Induced Trauma, MS Project                      Sept 2008 – Nov 2010

    Performed Finite Element Modeling using ABAQUS for helmet liner having channels filled with fluids or other materials.

    Designed experiments for evaluating different solid and fluid filler materials for mitigating blast waves.

    Modeling the Benefits of Artificial Gravity with Exercise & Vibration (Advisor: Prof. Dava Newman)          Jan - Jul 2010

    Modeled the effects of a countermeasure to maximally stimulate antigravity muscles and bones that incorporated artificial gravity, exercise, and vibration on a centrifuge.

    Earth-Based Prototype for Google Lunar X-Prize,                                                                                 Sept 2008 - May 2009

    Designed the structure of the spacecraft and performed dynamic load analysis using COSMOS.

    Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India

    Stress Wave Attenuation during Ballistic Impact on Ceramic Tiles, Undergraduate Research             Nov 2006 - Apr 2008

    Numerically and experimentally investigated the effect of ballistic impact on ceramic tiles used in the airframe.

     

    FIELD EXPERIENCE AND SUMMER SCHOOLS

    Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA), NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX                                    Aug 2015

    Participated as a flight engineer on a simulated asteroid flyby mission in which a crew of four spent two weeks inside a small habitat. It was designed to study impacts due to isolation, remoteness, and confined habitation.

    International Space University Southern Hemisphere Summer School, Adelaide, Australia                                 Jan-Feb 2012

    International Graduate Summer School in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Beijing, China                                         Jul 2011
