Vishal Raveendranathan

Currently in Groningen

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen. My work is supported by the European Commission project MyLeg (2018-2021).

Research Interest:

Biomechanical simulations, musculoskeletal modeling, OpenSim, Sensor Fusion, Embedded Systems, and IoT are my major focussed research interests. I plan to explore my existing domains in the areas of deep learning.


I hold MSc in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering from the University of Leeds. My thesis was based on musculoskeletal simulations of human gait using OpenSim.


I was working as a Flight Software Engineer at an aerospace research company TeamIndus, India for about 2 years. I am equipped to work on projects with interdisciplinary engineering domains. I had developed bare-metal programs for space-grade processors and was involved in driver development. Sensor integration and test software development were some areas that I had been managing in the team.
