Caian Shreya Singhal won the IMechE Vicon Best Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Award 2019 for her project developing a platform for the study of cochlear implants.
Each year, the IMechE Healthcare Technologies Student and Early Career Awards offer researchers an opportunity to showcase their work to business and academics leaders in the wide field of bioengineering.
Shreya is a medical student currently in her fifth year of Medicine. She completed the prize winning project whilst studying for a Master’s in Engineering, which she did in between her medical studies. Cochlear implants provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing.
