Senthur received his bachelor’s degree in Production Engineering and minor in Computer Science from the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli. During his time as an undergraduate, he worked on simulation of a lower-limb powered exoskeleton at the Defense Bioengineering and Electromedical Laboratory (DEBEL) & Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), India. He also spent two summers developing novel impedance controllers for teleoperated surgical robots at the Dept. of Engineering Design, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India under the guidance of Dr. T. Asokan. After his graduate studies, he founded Homebrew Bionics--a global community of engineers and makers striving to make a positive difference in the world with open-source and affordable prosthetic devices. Currently, he is working on the design and development of Open-source Leg v2.0. His primary interests include bio-inspired design and mechanisms, generative design, open-source prosthetic devices, and community-driven development.
