Mohit is an Innovation Fellow at the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign. He completed his PhD at Johns Hopkins, where he studied haptics and medical robotics. He built custom electromechanical testbeds to quantitatively assess how humans perceive touch. He concurrently served as an innovator-in-residence at Johns Hopkins CBID, where he previously earned his MSE in bioengineering innovation and design. He comes from India, where he completed his undergraduate training in mechanical engineering.

He has invented several patented and patent-pending medical devices, performed primary ethnography in multiple countries, and received funding from organizations such as the Gates Foundation. He continues his global health collaborations in India, Uganda and Zambia. Mohit also played a crucial role in Hopkins’ COVID-19 pandemic response, most notably helping devise an emergency dialysate production method that was adopted by multiple healthcare facilities.
