He is a guy who has won several awards and has been awarded the youngest scientist award by HUMCEN for his achievements and research projects. Twenty-four-year-old Akula Tharun Raj is a well-known name in young scientists’ circles. He is the founder of the start-up Practice Hub and is an M-Tech student from JNTUH. Unlike many who do not know how to spend their time during the lockdown, Tharun has used his time to file a nomination for young scientists at HUMCEN awards 2021, which happen to be given for human-centric innovations. He received more than 25,20,000 votes and was awarded in May. 

What caught everyone's attention was the millet sorting machine and firefighting swarm drones which help in rural development and disaster management. Raj was also given the best rural innovator award by the National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD) to invent the sorting machine with applications in food processing. His innovations were showcased at the Rural Innovators Start-up conclave, and he won many awards from IITs and NITs across India. 

Tharun says his long-term goal is to set up an incubation centre to mentor fellow innovators and bring young talent to the forefront. During the various events he was part of, he says he met many sparkling and brilliant minds from across India, which helped to upskill, more so in areas of software programming in robotics, automation and advanced processing in artificial intelligence. He says he now has the money to collaborate with other bright minds to pursue research projects.
