Shriya Srinivasan

Former Research Assistant
  • Biomechatronics

Shriya is a research affiliate at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and a recent alum of the Media Lab Biomechatronics research group. She graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a BS in biomedical engineering, with a concentration in biomaterials. 

Shriya is currently working on a proprioceptive, regenerative peripheral neural interface that will ultimately enable patients to control their prosthesis with native neural signals. She is also exploring optogenetic techniques to create novel strategies to accelerate and improve neural regeneration. 

Shriya’s undergraduate research focused on developing chemotheranostic agents to assess the efficacy of chemotherapeutics in real-time using imaging. Shriya was a former director of MIT Hacking Medicine and works passionately on global health projects.
