As the requirement for robotics research is ever growing from within the country, I am always looking for passionate and dedicated students all throughout the year. There are three ways to work with me:


I am affiliated with both the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber Physical Systems (RBCCPS) and the department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA). There is no preference between RBCCPS or CSA, and the Ph.D. programs are tailored for their own requirements. A lot of the students who wish to work with me apply to both. If your background is computer science, then CSA will be your natural choice. My advise is to check the list of courses, and websites of other faculty in the respective departments to see where you fit well.

Ph.D. applications are submitted in the online portal: LINK. The portals open during the months March-April and September-October of every year. Accouncements are usually made here: LINK.

M.Tech. (research)

RBCCPS has no M.Tech. program yet, and all of my M.Tech. students come from CSA. Applications are submitted in the same portal: LINK

Research internship/assistantship

Please send me an email with the title: “Application for XXXX, Duration” (example: Application for internship, Jan 2020 - July 2020), with the following details:

  1. CV detailing your past projects, GPA, robotic competitions participated/won etc. Video links and pictures of your robots (if you have) are always welcome!
  2. One-paragraph research statement detailing your research interests, and how you can contribute to our lab. For example: “I am interested in quadruped locomotion. I have studied some methods like ZMP…. used reinforcement learning for walking… My skills are in programming/design..”.
