Biomechanics and Soft Machine Lab

Soft Robotics, Bio-mechanics (cell, tissue etc), Medical device, Polymer Mechanics

BSM Lab in IIT Delhi does interdisciplinary research in Biomechanics at cellular and tissue scale, Biomedical device, Soft Robotics, Smart Material and Structures, Neural prosthetics, Orthopedic implants. We are actively involved in carrying out bio-mechanical simulations with patient specific nature, cell mehcanics of cancer progression, or stem cell differentiation etc.


Sandeep and Raghavendra successfully defended their thesis.

We welcome new PhD students Umesh and Suhash in Soft Machine Lab

Research Position(s) Available

One position might be available soon with Experimental mechanics background, and another one with continuum bio-mechanics. Our lab works in Bio and soft material direction, only if you are interested in those please get in touch.

We need people to work on soft wearable robotics. Please get in touch if you have background in mechanics, electrical engineering, design, signal processing or control engineering.
