I am a roboticist and soon to be a Ph.D. student in robotics.
My research interests lie at the intersection of robot autonomy, planning, and visual understanding for autonomous navigation and exploration. I am broadly interested in estimation problems, machine learning and inference, and SLAM in aerial, ground, and manipulation domains.
I spend most of my time at the lab or on the track– here’s me trying to jump far:
- Future me will be joining Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute as a Ph.D student.
- I have joined Indoor Robotics as a Robotics Algorithm Engineer.
- I have graduated from MIT with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, with a minor in Mathematics.
UPDATED September 2021: This guide is a walkthrough for setting up an autonomous ROS stack on a Raspberry Pi. Teleoperation, mapping, localization, and navigation are all covered!
It is often important for robots to know the location and shape of objects. However, this task can be a bit tricky! Many times robots can only obtain partial observations due to self-occlusions or occlusions in the scene. In this project (which is approximately equivalent to half of an undergraduate senior- year research project, with… Read more DELSE: Deforming Ellipsoids for object Shape Estimation →
