Dr Manish Chauhan is the Lecturer in Medical Engineering at the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology. He has actively participated in performing interdisciplinary research in molecular biology (bacterial studies), quantum physics (ultra-fast photonics, spectroscopy etc.) and clinical trials (work with cancer tissues/patients, animal, cadaver and simulator-based testing). He has consistently tried to conjoin results from interdisciplinary activities into robotics research.
Prior to his current role, he was a Marie Curie Fellow at the STORM Lab in the School of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Leeds where he actively participated in research at the National Centre for Robotic Engineering and Applications. His PhD degree in Bioengineering Robotics was awarded at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy in 2017, which involved developing teleoperated microsurgical forceps for vocal cord surgery.
