A fresh mind eager to apply, modeling skills, technical expertise and hands-on experience, in the conception of innovative mechatronic design solutions for control and machine vision systems.




M.S., Mechanical Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH (expected June 2002) GPA 3.72/4.0.


Thesis Topic: Shape Control of structures using a Multi-Camera 3-D photogrammetry system. The objective of this thesis work is to develop an efficient and accurate means of distributed shape control of a structure. Stereovision techniques are utilized to provide an accurate 3-D map of the structure and sliding mode and integral control techniques are to be used on a stepper motor actuator array for shape control of the structure.


B.E., Mechanical Engineering, Anna University, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India (05/1996 - 05/2000) GPA 8.96/10.0


Thesis Topic: Intelligent Inspection system. A simple machine vision system to inspect and check dimensional accuracy of an object was designed.
