Hi, I am Sandeep Vempati, currently working as a Project Lead at Center for Innovation at L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, a collaborative Innovation lab started by LV Prasad Eye Institute and MIT Media Labs. I'm an innovation-technology enthusiast, with an inclination towards design thinking and frugal innovation. My interests lie in developing next-generation healthcare solutions for the rural population and make them reach masses.

My areas of interests are Bio-mechanical Engineering, User Centric Design, Manufacturing, Geometrical Optics and Imaging. As part of my work, I got my hands dirty with almost all of the medical device development process. Most of my work is open source and you can see them in the projects section. With my experience in medical field I now believe engineers can contribute a lot to the healthcare sector in democratizing healthcare and make it more affordable to everyone.
