Indian team wins US Innovation Award
Saurabh Kewlani is part of a project that has been conferred the prestigious National Science Foundation Innovation-Corps (NSF I-Corps) Teams Award in the United States. Saurabh serves in a leadership role at SoftWorthy, the US startup whose team has been presented with the award by NSF, in recognition of an innovation which will help design reliable, next-generation electronic devices.
- Founded in 2020, SoftWorthy develops cutting-edge scientific computing and data analysis tools that address complex engineering problems in the industry.
- The company is led by a team of Indian engineers trained at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, and has been working to develop innovative software technology for performing engineering analysis.
- Saurabh, also a core contributor to the project, currently guides the team on issues related to IT systems & IT security.
- He also serves in various leadership roles in the IT sector, where he advises government & industry bodies in matters of information technology and information security.
- SoftWorthy's award-winning project focuses on developing state-of-the-art computational methods for 'stochastic modeling, design simulation and sensitivity analysis' of electronic devices like printed-circuit-boards (PCBs), which are critical for the growth of novel technological applications like driverless vehicles and energy efficient smart buildings.
- The software could be utilised by biomedical engineers for development of diagnostic tools with improved detection sensitivity and specificity, and drug discovery platforms with enhanced reconstitution of complex cellular interactions.
