I am a research fellow with the Dynamic Legged Systems Group, headed by Claudio Semini at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia. Previously, I was a Research Associate at the Indian Institute of Science , working on Continual Learning at the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory. I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) with a Dual Degree, Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, in Engineering Design.
In my current research, I focus on inducing biases using model-based priors to learn safe and robust vision-aided locomotion. I am broadly interested in supervised learning, reinforcement learning and control theory to apply them in robotics for control and planning in ardous scenarios.
