Thendral Govindaraj is a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech, co-advised by Dr. Nichols in Biological Sciences and Dr. Sawicki in Mechanical Engineering and Biological Sciences. She is using computational tools to investigate the influence of distributed force feedback on limb mechanics. She hopes that the results of this work can inform modifications to existing neuromechanical modeling platforms and influence the control of prosthetic and exoskeleton devices. In her free time, she enjoys singing and volunteering with Trees Atlanta.
