About me

I am an Assistant Professor of the Robert Bosch Centre 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, M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (2012) from Texas A&M University, and B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering (2008) from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal. I started my career in the field of robotics, especially in the domain of legged robots. 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 machine learning for all kinds of robotic platforms.

I am now a part of the Stochastic Robotics Lab, wherein we are focusing on developing novel learning based controllers for quadrupeds.
