Ranganathan Parthasarathy, Ph.D.

Research Associate at Tennessee State University
Ph.D. Bioengineering, University of Kansas
Graduate Research Assistant, Drs. Misra & Spencer
Primary office:

While at the BERC, Dr. Parthasarathy served as both a Graduate Teaching Assistant and a Graduate Research Assistant. He won second place in the 2013 Graduate Engineering Division Sigma Xi Competition. The Sigma Xi competition requires a submission of a virtual research presentation, which is reviewed by leading career scientists. He graduated with his Bioengineering doctorate in August 2013. He earned his M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Currently, he is a Research Associate in the Department of Physics & Mathematics at Tennessee State University in Nashville.
