I am a senior undergraduate student at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, majoring in Mathematics and Computing. My research interests mainly lie in perception and planning of autonomous mobile robots.
In summer 2017, I interned at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory where I worked on risk-aware probabilistic motion planning for future Mars Rovers including the Mars 2020 Rover.
In summer 2016, I interned at the Autonomous Mobile Robotics Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I worked on a new approach to obstacle avoidance using only stereo vision without the need for dense 3D reconstruction.
Currently I’m building autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) capable of delivering medicinal supplies to rural regions of India with Aerial Robotics Kharagpur. I’m also with Technology Robotix Society which aims to spread the culture of robotics in India through various events and workshops.
On most days I’m cheerful and friendly but I know all about pain and suffering being a religious Arsenal fan. Apart from football, I love playing table tennis and I captain my college’s table tennis team.
My sporadically updated curriculum vitae holds more information about my experiences and skills.
