Dr. Biswarup Mukherjee is an Assistant Professor at the Center for Biomedical Engineering, IIT Delhi. His research effort is focused towards developing multi-modal platform technologies that provide the means to non-invasively monitor aspects of neuromuscular activity in real-time, particularly for rehabilitation applications. Development of biomimetic sensors to improve sensorimotor integration in individuals with motor disabilities. He is also interested in developing tools and devices for quantitative assessment of motor skills.
He obtained PhD in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras where he developed capacitive and magnetic sensing systems for medical training and simulation applications. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School where he developed novel medical training models for emergency medicine, ophthalmology and nursing. He was a Research Assistant Professor with the Department of Bioengineering at George Mason University. He was also an affiliate faculty at the Center for Adaptive Systems of Brain-Body Interactions at Mason. There he was involved in multiple federally funded projects to develop low-power ultrasound instrumentation and techniques for muscle-activity monitoring for prosthetic and rehabilitation applications.
