Experience

Dec 2018 - Dec 2019 Prosthetic Technician at Free 3d Hands

Worked with Matt Bowtell (Australian of the year 2018) in developing a low cost prosthetic hand for underprivileged members of the community. His company, Free 3d Hands developed a body– powered prosthetic hand having a spring mechanism for clutching objects using cutting-edge biomedical engineering knowledge, we were brought on to assist in the development of a prosthetic hand with a motor and reflectance sensor

Responsibilities Include: –
• Developing the interface between the arm and the operating system that governed the interaction of the user with the external environment
• Understanding the functioning of the muscular system around the arm and it’s interaction with the reflectance sensor
• Interpreting the reflectance sensor signal and adapting it to individual muscle movement
• The first working prototype was set to ship in March 2020 but due to the pandemic restrictions, development was put on hold
• The successor to the hand, was meant to consist of a smart myoelectric motor which would utilize a machine learning model to interact with the environment via the motors in the
prosthetic hand.

Aug 2020 - Dec 2020 Computer Vision Research Assistant at University of Melbourne

Machine Learning Research in conjunction with IBM and ARC (Centre of Excellence). My primary involvement was in the development of an Object Detection System as a part of an overarching project which uses a Brain-computer interface to enable paraplegic patients to interact with the environment due to partial or complete loss of sensation/function in their limbs.

Responsibilities Include: –
• Developing an Object detection system trained on the COCO dataset and Yolo V3
• Improving the functionality of the detection system with a list of auxiliary functions like pose estimation, color recognition, image similarity, image segmentation etc
• Incorporating the module to work well with an ARM-powered GPU for enhanced low power but high processing speed in an edge device (Jetson TX2)
• Working with a stereo camera to utilize it’s depth estimation, 3d scanning features and smart sensors for positional tracking
• Developing complex algorithms to retain detected data in memory to be cross-referenced with later iterations of the object
• The project required proficient knowledge in Python and Python libraries – PIL, Pillow, OpenCV, Sci-kit, pip etc.

Jan 2021 - Aug 2023 Field Clinical Engineer at Synchron Australia

My Primary Objective is to go see patients who are enrolled into clinical trials in Melbourne, Australia by performing experimental session runs and data collection for signal analysis and software improvement

Responsibilities Include: –
• Making regular scheduled visits to patient’s residence for collecting brain data on behalf of Synchron and Royal Melbourne Hospital as part of the Stentrode clinical trial
• Working with the software and clinical team to ensure documentation for regulatory bodies have been attested and match regulatory standards
• Assisting Software development team in developing Brain-Computer Interface analysis tools for user interaction with the real world
• Assist in signal processing and signal annotation
• Developing vital Machine Learning tools for signal analysis

Aug 2023 - Present Biomedical Engineer - BCI Applications at Synchron
