I am an INSPIRE Faculty fellow in the Robert Bosch Center for Cyber Physical Systems (RBCCPS) in IISc Bangalore. I received my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (2016) from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am interested in stability and control of nonlinear hybrid systems, especially in the domain of legged robots. I have worked with robots like AMBER1, AMBER2, DURUS-2D, and DURUS. I am interested both in theoretical and practical aspects of hybrid robotic systems. In fact, my PhD dissertation was about bridging the gap between theory and experiment by using input-to-state stabilizing control Lyapunov functions (ISS-CLFs).
This was one of my first publications that appeared as a chapter in Springer.

Chapter in Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics X: Selected Contributions of the Tenth International Workshop on the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics, Springer International Publishing, Cham.
This is my most recent publication which is about how to use ISS-CLFs to address the problem of parameter uncertainty in robotic systems.
