I am a graduate student in Robotics, Systems and Controls program at ETH Zurich. My research interests lie in designing learning-based systems for navigation and manipulation in unknown environments.
I graduated from IIT Kanpur in May 2018 with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. In the summer of 2017, I worked with Prof. Wolfram Burgard on predicting landing sites from aerial images. During my undergraduate program, I co-founded the AUV team for marine robotics and worked on various mecahnical, electrical and software aspects of the project.
Apart from my academic engagements, I enjoy playing lawn tennis, swimming and trying out new cuisines! In my spare time, I often end up procrastinating on GitHub or reading about new hardware.
