Suvranu De is the J Erik Jonsson ’22 Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where he serves as Head of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering (MANE) and Director of the Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM). Dr. De’s research is at the intersection of computational mechanics and healthcare. With more than $25 million in extramural grant funding, he has pioneered the field of “virtual surgery” that involves the development of novel systems with visual as well as haptic (touch) interfaces, designed to provide immersive interactive experience where the user is able to touch, feel, and manipulate virtual tissues and organs through surgical tool handles used in actual surgery.
