I am a fifth year PhD student at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (moved from Brown University) in Computer Science Engineering department. I am working in "The laboratory for Progress" headed by Prof. Chad Jenkins. My research focus is Perception for Manipulation. Specifically I am developing algorithms that can enable a personal robot to perceive cluttered scenes in order to manipulate objects.
Previously I completed my Masters from the Department of Computer Science at International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India. I was working in the Robotics Research Center headed by Dr K Madhava Krishna and was co-advised by Dr C V Jawahar from Center of Visual Information Technology (CVIT).
