Career and Academic Background before TAOYAKA Program

I have complete Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering from Sardar Patel College of Engineering, Mumbai, India in 2004. I have worked in information technology sector for 11 years. My expertise are in the field of information security, internet security cloud computing and leadership. During my 11 years of experience I have worked in companies like Vmware Inc and couple of startups. This experience has given me a deep insight into multiple aspects of the technology requirement as well as leadership perspective. My desire to learn new things got me interested in the field of biological systems and engineering. Just like internet networking and security technology I see lot of similarity and complex networking within human body and a lot to learn and implement from it. This desire got me interested in coming back to academics, so I am here in Hiroshima University.

Research Plan in TAOYAKA Program

During my research in biological system lab, my focus is on 3D simulation of human musculoskeletal model and identifying the preliminary issues from the simulated scan on individual. This research requires study of Human anatomy, biomechanics, and physics involved in this process. Outcome of the research is possible scanning devices acceptable from both cultural and social perspective and portable to work in disadvantaged areas. The goal of my research is to build this scanning device for preliminary medical checks and helps performing the root cause analysis or get remote help from authorized medical practitioners. MY research is also useful for organization building eternal actuators which are source of external strength. My research will be useful for identifying the usefulness of these external actuators in disadvantaged area.

Career Plan after TAOYAKA Program

Taoyaka Program has unique approach to problem solving and building leadership qualities though its cultural, social and technical thinking. I think this will help me after completion of this program to start my own company in India. The goal of my company would be to find use cases and requirement of my research and past experiences in India. Based on the case studies and collaboration I would like to build the products for these through my company which can be used in both urban and rural areas. The long term goal of my company will be build products for healthy lifestyle and health care.
