Dr.Jose Joseph is an Assistant Professor at Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K). Prior to joining IIITM-K, he was working as a post-doctoral researcher in E. L. Ginzton laboratory (Electrical Engineering) at Stanford University, CA, USA. He also worked as a research associate in Center for Nanoscience and Engineering (CeNSE) & Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.

In his research career, Jose focused on developing novel ultrasound transducers for imaging, biometric and airborne applications. He also worked on developing miniaturized biosensors and sensors for precision agriculture. He has seven years of microfabrication experience. His primary research interest is applied ultrasonics (neuromodulation, fingerprint detection, airborne navigation etc.).
