I am a PhD Robotics student at Georgia Tech advised by James Hays. My PhD thesis is on observing and predicting hand-object interaction during human grasping, especially from the contact perspective. I've also worked on learning to navigate and localize agents in large environments, object detection under occlusion, and object pose estimation. I was previously advised by Henrik Christensen.
I have a Masters degree in Robotics from the University of Pennsylvania, where I had the pleasure to work with Dr. Kostas Daniilidis. Before that, I got a bachelor's degree in electronics and communication engineering from Nirma University, India.
Detection and segmentation of partially occluded objects.
We made GRASPY, Penn's PR2 robot detect and estimate the 6-DOF pose of household objects, all from one 2D image.
Our Team DARwIN won the Humanoid Kid Size League world championships.
We used a Kinect to segment spherical and cylindrical objects lying on a table and guided a robotic arm to their 3D position.
