Vikrant Singh

Research Associate

Vikrant completed his B.E. in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering from the Institute of Technology and Management, India in 2014. Subsequently he finished both his MTech (Research) and PhD from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2021. During his graduate research he extensively worked on precision actuation and measurement systems. He is currently a postdoctoral research assistant as the University of Texas at Dallas and is a member of the Laboratory for Dynamics and Control of Nanosystems. His current research interests include self-actuating and sensing scanning probe microscopes, precision positioners, and micro-robotics.
