Murthy Arelekatti - PhD Student


Research Interests

I am a PhD candidate in the Mechanical Engineering graduate program. I received my undergraduate (B.Tech.) degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Before MIT, I worked as a Design Engineer at 3M India. The intersection of rigorous engineering and elegant product design is what really interests me, particularly in the current socio-economic context of India.
