About

Saurabh is hesitant to give himself a title, but will settle for inquisitive engineer. Intrigued by the idea of applying traditional engineering principles to the fluid parameters of the human body, Saurabh studied bioengineering as an undergraduate. The fascination of taking a calculated, logical approach to a problem without a defined path led him to the uncertain world of design thinking. Now, Saurabh hopes to hone his skills across engineering, communication, and design to solve the unique problems that cross his path. Saurabh is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. In his free time, he enjoys sports analytics writing, running, golfing, occasionally trying to solve math puzzles, and watching basketball.

Why EDI?

Over the past couple years, through his position at a contract manufacturer, Saurabh worked with some of the most innovative companies in the Bay Area. While he played an important role in manufacturing their product, he longed for more ownership of the design. He wanted to be able to point to a tangible product in the world and claim the design as his own. However, to do that he felt he needed to understand how to build something worth pointing to, and he says that EDI provides him with the resources to make that happen.
