Have you ever wondered how Modjoul is able to provide the crucial data needed to limit illness and injury in the workplace? Well, understanding the intricate movements of the body and capturing industry leading proximity data doesn’t just happen. It takes a team to develop wearables, data models, and cloud architecture that turn raw data into tangible results for your company. At Modjoul there is a lot that goes on under the hood, and we want to highlight the brilliant minds that allow us to continue to innovate in the wearable technology industry. Today, we want to formally introduce you to our Director of Data Science: Dr. Praveen Nedumpully-Govindan.
Praveen hales from Kerala, India and is a PhD in Computational Physics. He holds degrees from University of Calicut, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, and Aalto University, Finland and has travelled the world to study with some of the brightest minds in his field. He also has experience carrying out postdoctoral research at Clemson University and the University of Texas at Austin. He has published several articles in peer-reviewed international journals, and has presented his work at various international conferences. Outside of work, Praveen is an avid football fan and loves to root for his Clemson Tigers!
With Modjoul from our early days, Praveen has spearheaded the data science efforts on all of our major products. His main role has been to build machine learning algorithms that capture human activities. From our first iterations of the SmartBelt, to our partnership with Ansell, the world’s foremost glove manufacturer, Praveen has helped Modjoul develop a suite of wearables and mobile apps that can inform organizations of lumbar, wrist, and illness risk.
One of Praveen’s favorite quotes is…
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” - Lao Tzu
With a proven track record of success in academia and with Modjoul, it is evident that Praveen uses this quote as a guiding principal. Though Modjoul’s latest endeavors in illness prevention have presented many new challenges, just like the projects before, Praveen has taken them on one step at a time with confidence. He gets things done, and our team knows they can rely on him to deliver.
