Raman, R. Candid 1

I am fascinated by biological materials and their ability to dynamically sense and adapt to their surroundings. My research focuses on biohybrid design: building machines powered by biological materials. My goal is to develop biohybrid implantable robots that dynamically sense and adapt to the human body and help fight disease and damage.

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Robert Langer at MIT, where I design responsive materials and devices for translational medical applications. I received my Ph.D. from the lab of Prof. Rashid Bashir at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I developed robots powered by living biological materials.
