Biomedical Engineering

Ph.D (Biomedical Engineering), Australia

Mohsin Tiwana received his B.E. degree in Mechatronics engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan, in 2007, and won Rectors Gold Medal. For his pioneering work on artificial limb design, he was given the presidential award. He received his Ph.D. in Biomedical engineering from University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia and won global innovation award in 2012. In 2013, he was awarded the prestigious Technology Transformer of the Year Award by CRDF Global, USA. In 2015, he was conferred with Presidents Gold Medal for Innovation & Commercialization & was also awarded the National Excellence Award. At IROS 2016, he was runners up in Robotics Entrepreneurship Forum.

Dr Tiwana has been a guest speaker at Harvard, MIT, Stanford and many other prestigious organizations. His research interests lie in tactile sensors, wireless network systems, myo-electric prostheses and minimally invasive surgery robots.
