Jayaraj Joseph

Jayaraj Joseph received his bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Instrumentation from the College of Engineering, Trivandrum in 2006. He completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 2011. His doctoral research involved designing novel transducers and developing intelligent systems for non-invasive evaluation of arterial stiffness for cardiovascular screening. Two patents were filed based on his doctoral research, and he was awarded the silver medal for the best PhD thesis in Electrical Engineering in inter-disciplinary areas of research. He is currently the Systems Architect at HTIC, IIT Madras, and deals with hardware projects involving sensors and instrumentation, system integration and medical device development. His main research interests apart from biomedical instrumentation include automated test and measurement, virtual instrumentation, and renewable energy resources.
