I have stopped actively maintaining this webpage. Google Scholar has most up to date list of my publications.

If I don’t know you, then the best way to communicate is via LinkedIn.

If I know you really well, then I’d love to talk to you on the phone.


I am the Partner Research Manager for the Aerial Informatics and Robotics (AIR)  Group at Microsoft, Redmond. I am passionate about building intelligent and autonomous flying agents that are safe and enable applications that can positively influence our society. The core technology builds upon cutting edge research in machine intelligence, robotics and human-centered computation, in order to enable an entire fleet of flying robots that range from micro-UAVs to commercial jetliners. Various application scenarios include Weather Sensing, Monitoring for Precision Agriculture, Safe Cyber-Physical Systems, etc.
