Hi! I am a fourth-year student in the integrated BS/MS program at IIIT Hyderabad, India. I am interested in vision-based navigation and manipulation. I am an undergraduate researcher at Robotics Research Center, advised by Prof. K. Madhava Krishna.
I spent my summer of 2021 working under Prof. David Held at Carnegie Mellon University. I formulated a differentiable version of linear dynamic systems, which could be used as a building block to accelerate the learning and transfer of policies.
I find it fascinating that starting with bulding blocks in Probabilistic and Statistical thinking and throwing in some Linear Algebra and Calculus in the mix, we can accomplish extremely powerful function approximators that can emulate knowledge-based reasoning. At present I am focusing on laying down firm roots in the basics, and taking an applied look at ML and Robotics. As I move forward, I will explore the theoritical aspects of ML and Robotics more deeply when I am better equipped with fundamental tools.
I am additionally interesting in learning new things - this could be anything interesting in mathematics or computer science.
If you’re in Hyderabad area and are looking for collaborators for ML/CV projects, please feel free to get in touch!
