Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Siddarth Kumar. I am a graduate student (PhD) at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. Before coming to MIT, I finished my undergraduate studies at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), at Delhi. I am a resident of New Delhi, India and have lived there most of my life.
My research interests include studies on the biomechanics of touch, micro fabrication, soft lithography and the development of rehabilitation tools for the disabled.
I am a also Graduate Research Assistant at the MIT Touch Lab (known more formally as the Laboratory of Human and Machine Haptics)
The lab conducts research in multiple disciplines including skin biomechanics, tactile neuroscience, human-computer interfaces, haptic aids for the blind among others.
