Who Am I? Who Are You?
Hello! My name is Shruti.
I am a Post Doc Researcher.
I currently live in London, England (but only for another couple of months until I move to Edinburgh, Scotland!)
My research area is prosthetics for people with amputations, specifically the fit of the socket.
What I like best about my work is that it has the potential to have a genuine real-world impact and improve the quality of life of people with amputations. It's what drives what I do. I don't want my work to be relevant to only people who have large sums of money or just stuck in the world of academia. I want it out there and that's what I strive for.
When I’m not working, I like to try and keep fit and active, but this is a slow and cyclical process as my body likes to go rogue every so often. When I can, I like to travel and discover new things (mainly food!) and cultures but also do it in a way that cares for the planet, so minimise flying for a start! At the moment I'm also making plans for the new house/garden which is exciting too (much more than packing...)
It’s great to be here (even though recently I've been a bit more absent, I'll get better!) And I look forward to getting to know each of you better 😊
