About Me

I am CS PhD student in robotics & machine learning at the Robotics & Embedded Systems Lab (RESL) under Dr. Gaurav Sukhatme. I have 5+ years of work experience, working primarily on robotics controls problems outside Boston. I have experience in mobile robotics (SLAM), system modelling, control theory, machine learning (especially reinforcement learning), and computer vision. See my résumé and academic CV for more information.

My research interests are geared towards making robots perform regular day-to-day activities in unstructured environments (e.g. cooking in homes). I am particularly interested in the application of reinforcement learning and hierarchical planning for robotic manipulation tasks.
