I am a fourth year PhD student at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (moved from Brown University) in Computer Science Engineering department. I am working in "The laboratory for Progress" headed by Prof. Chad Jenkins.

Previously I completed my Masters from the Department of Computer Science at International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India. I was working in the Robotics Research Center headed by Dr K Madhava Krishna and was co-guided by Dr C V Jawahar from Center of Visual Information Technology (CVIT).

My work involved 3D perception and Robotics Vision. Please have a look at my research interests for more details about my previous work.
