Body Composition Certification
Covers the science of body composition and how 3D optical imagers, like Styku are able to accurately predict fat, lean mass, and more.
Raj is an entrepreneur, scientist, and inventor who currently leads a fast-growing wellness technology start-up Styku. With a BS in Space Sciences, and an MS in Physics, Raj spent much of his academic career focused on learning about the physical world we live in and the universe above. His journey included stints at NASA, where he spent time working in the shuttle program, and later the astrobiology institute for the study of biomarkers. Driven by the possibility of discovering life elsewhere, Raj eventually settled as a research scientist at the California and Carnegie Planet Search lab, where he spent several years in post-grad researching extra-solar planets around other stars. Having come from a family of entrepreneurs, Raj fosters a deep desire to build innovative technology that can help further understanding of the world. Raj made a career change and joined his family’s software business, where he would discover a need for innovation in computer vision of the human form. Having gained valuable skills in imaging and sensing technologies, Raj would turn his attention from studying celestial bodies to studying human bodies, by inventing several pioneering 3D imaging systems for lifestyle businesses. Today, he finds himself fortunate in building markets for body scanners for lifestyle purposes, such as fitness, health assessment, and shopping. Raj has been a guest lecturer on several occasions for a technology course at Harvard Business School and is a graduate of the prestigious Techstars Accelerator. Raj lives in Rolling Hills, CA with his wife, daughter, and dog Skywalker.
