ABOUT

I am currently leading the manipulation effort at ANYbotics. Previously I co-founded Naska.AI (formerly Scaled Robotics) where I served as CTO for 7 years. I'm interested in leveraging movement and interaction to solve complex real-world perception problems. For more than a decade, I worked on various problems in autonomy for ground, aerial, and humanoid robots. Now I have focused my attention on developing deep tech products utilizing Robotics and AI for the industrial sector.
I have been lucky to spend more than a decade working as a robotics researcher at some of the world's leading robotics labs. My alma mater includes the Computational Learning and Motor Control Laboratory (USC), the Max Planck Institute's Autonomous Motion Department, the GRASP Laboratory (UPenn), and the Robotics Institute (CMU) just to name a few.

MY WORK

Motion & Perception

There's an interesting theory in neuroscience that claims movement is fundamentally tied to intelligence. This is also supported by evidence in the evolutionary biology from single-cell organisms. Building on these insights, I'm interested in endowing autonomous systems the ability to learn and reason about their environment through movement and interaction. This also requires them to build appropriate environmental representations that can facilitate these actions. These abilities can ultimately allow these autonomous systems to operate in complex human environments with minimal to no supervision. You can have a look at some of my current and past projects in these areas below.
