Assistant Professor

About Me

Venkatsubramanian Kalpathy Venkiteswaran is Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomechanical Engineering at University of Twente. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Surgical Robotics Lab at University of Twente for two years. He received his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from The Ohio State University, USA, working on design principles for compliant mechanisms. 


Research

Venkat’s research interests include design of soft robots and flexible devices, with a focus on medical application. He is currently working on projects related to bio-inspired untethered magnetic soft robots, flexure-based design of continuum manipulators, magnetic catheters for percutaneous coronary interventions, geometrically-exact models for continuum devices and the use of magnetic actuation systems for minimally-invasive surgery.
