Surya Prasath

PI Profile

surya.prasath@cchmc.org, prasatsa@uc.edu, surya.iit@gmail.com

Surya is the PI of the lab, but the students below are the ones who really do all the works. Outside of the lab, he enjoys spending time with his family, reading books… and creating new awesome (at least he thinks they are awesome, we know otherwise) concoctions by mixing various brewed coffee with whatever lying around...
