Pratik Chawla

My name is Pratik Chawla, I am a Master's Student at Purdue University studying Mechanical Engineering. I have also completed my Bachelors in ME at Purdue and I hold a certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. My focus is in product design, specifically commercial products that may have high utility. The process of brainstorming innovative products and making them a reality through rough prototypes excites me. I am also fond of bio-inspired robotics and mixing neuroscience/biology with engineering to create additional senses and extending the functionality of the human body.
