Yuva obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Anna University, India and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
, respectively. She has been involved in designing prototypes intended to service the problems of the physically challenged. She also trained in the use of electroencephalogram machine – a non-invasive medical equipment used to detect signal acquisition in the brain.
Her masteral dissertation utilized electroencephalography to understand bilinguals’ artificial grammar learning abilities. During her undergrad, she heavily contributed to the design of a portable Braille that helps the visually impaired. Her self-learning and tutoring kit received 100% efficiency rate among a sample of 5 to 15 year old blind users during the prototype-testing phase.
