Abhishek Raj


MS & Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering- Indian Institute of Technology Madras, (July 2013 – July 2018)

B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering – Jaypee University of Engineering and Technology, Guna (M.P), India, (July 2009- May 2013)


Abhishek Raj grew up in Bihar, India. He holds a Ph.D degree from “Indian Institute of Technology Madras”. In his Ph.D, he has worked on Flow dynamics through deformable microchannels, cell mechanophenotyping and the interaction between deformable objects (such droplet and cells) with the deformable boundaries. As part of his PhD, he had developed a constriction based high throughput microfluidic device for cell mechanophenotyping. In his free time, Abhishek likes to do martial arts, loves music and is a certified trainer for “Sudarshan Kriya Yoga” from “The Art of Living Foundation”.
