Biography

I am interested in working at the intersection of Machine Learning and Robotics. I have mainly worked on developing Reinforcement Learning and Deep Learning based algorithms to build some cool Robots.

In my sophomore year, I started to work under Dr. Shital Chiddarwar in IvLabs and took various challenges that involved the application of Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning.

I spent the summer of 2020 working in Dr. David Held's R-PAD Lab at Carnegie Mellon University as a part of the Robotics Institute Summer Scholar’s Program remotely.

Besides research, I enjoy listening to music, playing guitar and spending time in nature.
