Personal profile

Overview

Personal website: https://sites.google.com/view/amit-n-pujari/

Amit is a biomedical engineer and a neuroscientist with over 15 years of experience in medical device development and Neurorehabilitation engineering. Amit is currently an Associate Professor (Reader) of Biomedical Engineering at University of Hertfordshire, where he leads a Neu(RAL)2: NeuRAL Systems & Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Laboratory. He is also currently a Royal Academy of (RAEng) Industrial Fellow, having recently completed his RAEng/Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship, working on developing novel noninvasive devices for stroke and spinal injury recovery.

Amit has a unique and diverse background, having worked in healthcare, industry, and academia across different countries. He studied and collaborated with some of the world's top institutions in biomedical engineering/neuroscience, such as Strathclyde, Aberdeen, Leeds, and Alberta. Amit is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and Member of the UK Young Academy. Amit's mission is to apply his engineering and neuroscience skills to improve the quality of life and mobility of people with disabilities and chronic conditions.

Current Research:

Amit's current research is in the area of optimising the use of vibration stimuli for muscle strengthening and rehabilitation applications, both in the healthy population and in the population with stroke and spinal cord injury. Amit uses various neurophysiological tools (high density EMG, Transcranial and peripheral nerve stimulation) and engineering tools (sensors and advanced signal processing methods) to understand the neurophysiolgical basis of vibration stimuli so that this improved understanding can be employed to develop effective rehabilitation device(s) and exercise(s).

Neu(RAL)2: NeuRAL Systems & Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Laboratory:

Neu(RAL)2 is well equipped for Neurorehabilitation Engineering research with the state of the art equipment.

Lab includes: High density EMG system (TMSi), traditional EMG system (Delsys), Peripheral nerve stimulation system (Digitimer), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (MagVenture), custom designed and developed vibration stimulation devices for the upper and lower limbs (whole body vibration).

Research interests

Amit's research interest and expertise broadly lie in the three areas:

* Medical device development, mainly in the area of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation
