I’m a roboticist pursuing my masters degree at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I was a research intern at the Robotics Research Center, IIIT Hyderabad.
I enjoy working on projects at the intersection of electronics, computer science and medicine. When I’m not working, I’m working out. I also enjoy photography, visiting new cities and hiking.
My awesome days as an undergrad at Velammal Engineering College, Chennai shall never be forgotten!
