I am a Meng student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at McGill University. I completed my bachelor's degree in Vellore Institute of Technology, India in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. During my undergraduate years, I was involved in a robotics team that build prototype rover for Mars exploration. Additionally, I had the opportunity to serve as a MITACS Globalink Research Intern at Memorial University of Newfoundland, exploring tactile sensing for swarm robots, further fueling my passion for robotics.
Now part of McGill's RAISE Lab, I have worked on projects such as improving the compliance of the Stretch Robot. My current emphasis is on the Panda robot, and I am working on a very exciting project where I utilize the Panda arm to serve croissants, diving into Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) dynamics. Experimenting with various approaches, including imitation learning, I'm eager to understand people's responses to a robot taking on this delightful task.
Beyond the world of circuits and code, I enjoys various activities, whether it's exploring new places, spending time with friends, catching up on sitcoms, or experimenting in the kitchen, I find joy in the simple things. Adding a touch of local flavor, I've also taken up ice skating since my arrival in Montreal.
