I am a roboticist working in the motion planning team at Aurora Innovation. I finished my PhD in robotics at Georgia Tech’s Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) in May 2022. I was advised by Prof.Panagiotis Tsiotras and was fortunate to collaborat with Prof.Seth Hutchinson. My PhD thesis titled, “Informed Exploration Algorithms for Robot Motion Planning and Learning” (pdf), proposes a family of intelligent exploration algorithms for efficient motion planning and learning. My research area lies at the exciting intersection of A.I and heuristics, machine learning and optimal-control theory. I graduated from IIT-Madras in 2017 with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Engineering Design, where I worked on planning and control of autonomous ground vehicles with Prof.Shankar Ram C S.
