I am a researcher in the Adaptive Systems and Interaction (ASI) group led by Dr. Eric Horvitz at Microsoft Research, Redmond.

I finished my PhD at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA, where I was advised by Prof. Drew Bagnell. I do fundamental as well as applied research in machine learning, control and computer vision with applications to autonomous agents in general and robotics in particular.

I am interested in bridging the gap between perception and planning for autonomous ground and aerial vehicles. My interests include decision-making under uncertainty, reinforcement learning, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Nowadays I am especially interested in all kinds of aerial vehicle autonomy ranging from small quadrotors to large gliders.

I graduated in 2007 from Delhi College of Engineering with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. From 2007 to 2010 I was a researcher at the Field Robotics Center, Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.
