Dr. Amruta Behara is an associate professor at Plaksha University, with expertise that includes MEMS (micro-electromechanical system) technology and IoT (Internet of Things) systems. He uses Wolfram Language in his teaching and as an essential tool in his utilitarian research focused on IoT and sensor technologies to find solutions for the grand challenges in the agriculture and healthcare sectors.
Prior to joining Plaksha University, Dr. Behera worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, where he led a team to develop a pocket-sized near-infrared spectrometer for quality analysis of food and agriculture produce. His PhD research focused on exploration of dynamic characteristics of MEMS for potential sensing applications and development of techniques for measurement of material properties in fabricated micro-mechanical structures. Dr. Behera also worked as a consultant, where he reviewed, developed and updated Wolfram Language-based content for various Wolfram U courses and achieved his instructor certification.
Dr. Behera uses Wolfram Language for teaching in many different settings. As a teaching assistant, he taught Wolfram Language to first-year postgraduate students as well as to students in the course Mechanics of Microsystems. He has taught online classes for Wolfram U and continues to use the language for teaching university classes.
