Mani received his B.E in Mechanical Engineering from University of Mumbai. For his senior design project, he developed a Flexible Link Robotic Arm using Air Muscles. Mani earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in the Telerobotics Lab. His primary interests are in medical robotics, teleoperation of micromanipulation systems, and medical devices. After graduation, Mani joined Energid in Burlington, Massachusetts. As of the last update of this page, Mani is with Amazon Robotics.
