Tanmay joined BioinSyst in Fall of 2017 as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering. Prior to joining the lab, he was pursuing his bachelors and masters of technology in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. His research interests include developing patient-specific models of blood vessels to study patient-to-patient variations within different vascular disorders. He has successfully amalgamated next-generation RNA sequencing techniques with patient blood-derived endothelial progenitor cells and organ-chip technology. Tanmay aspires to become an independent researcher while mentoring and leading a team of budding scientists. Apart from academics, he likes singing, listening to music and sketching.
