Nidhi Seethapathi

Nidhi Seethapathi (shared appointment in EECS and the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing) joined the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in January 2022. She received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute and a PhD from the Movement Lab at Ohio State University. Her research interests include building computational predictive models of human movement with applications to autonomous and robot-aided neuromotor rehabilitation. In her work, she uses a combination of tools and approaches from dynamics, control theory, and machine learning. During her PhD, she was a Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Fellow. She then worked as a postdoc in the Kording Lab at University of Pennsylvania, developing data-driven tools for autonomous neuromotor rehabilitation, in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab.
