About me

I am an Assistant Professor of the Robert Bosch Center for Cyber Physical Systems (RBCCPS) and the Department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA) in IISc Bangalore. Formally, I am a core faculty of CSA and a full-time associate faculty of RBCCPS. I received my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (2016) from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I started my career in the field of robotics, especially in the domain of legged robots. I have worked with robots like AMBER1, AMBER2, DURUS-2D, and DURUS. My primary focus as a PhD student was on stability and control of walking robots. I have diversified to other fields like safety-critical control, and reinforcement learning for all kinds of robotic platforms. Follow this LINK to know more about my research.

NOTE: I am co-teaching a class this semester with Prof. Shalabh Bhatnagar on “Advanced Topics in Robot Learning and Control”. More details are in this link: CP 314.
