About me

I am currently pursuing a Dual Degree (B.Tech and M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering and a Minor in Computer Science at IIT Bombay. My work is on sequential decision making problems that use variants of the Multi-Armed Bandit framework. My thesis advisor is Prof. Sharayu Moharir.

I have also worked with Dr. Leena Vachhani on video-stabilization for a mobile-robotics application and with Prof. Shivaram Kalyankrishnan on sample-efficiency in reinforcement-learning.

Broadly, my research interest lies in the area of intelligent robotics. I want to be able to realize, in part, the goal of embodied intelligence where an agent is able to efficiently interact with its environment to achieve a set of goals. In particular I am interested in problems like motion planning, robotic manipulation and human-robot interaction.
