Experience

September 2020
Present

Tata Research Development and Design Centre

Researcher

Currently part of Behavioral, Business and Social Sciences research group studying human behavior.

October 2019
June 2020

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Research Assistant

Developed a Multimodal Deception Detection system that can detect if a person is innocent or guilty based on eye-tracking data. The project was in collaboration with Temasek Labs, under the guidance of Prof. Eng Siong. Various attributes were extracted from the raw data and a classifier was designed to make the prediction.

PROJECTS

DECEPTION DETECTION

The project started at Nanyang Technological University as a part of Temasek Labs, wherein a person needs to be classified as guilty or innocent based on several psychological signals. In the initial phase, eye features were used and an accuracy of 99.2%  was achieved.

 

EOG BASED VIRTUAL KEYBOARD

EOG(Electrooculogram) based virtual keyboard can assist people with motor neuron disease to communicate effectively. EOG signals were extracted using ECG electrodes attached around the eyes. The signals were filtered using an array of filters and digitized using Arduino.

HEART-RATE MONITORING SYSTEM

A Heart Rate Monitoring System is developed using the Infrared PPG (Plethysmograph) sensor. The signals were filtered and processed using Arduino and Matlab.

ACHIEVEMENTS

Innovative Assistive Communication Device                                                

Developed an assistive communication device for paralyzed and speech-impaired patients. Assisted a sixty-three-year-old fully paralyzed and speech-impaired patient in communicating her thoughts and needs to her family. The accomplishment was featured in The Times of India, December 16, 2019.

DST and Texas Instruments Inc. India Innovation Challenge Design Contest 2017

Made it to the Quarterfinals of the challenge in designing a Smart Wheelchair which can be used by paralyzed people in moving around comfortably. The wheelchair can be operated using eye signals. The contest was anchored by NSRCEL, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB) and supported by MyGov.
