Graduate Research Assistant, Legged Systems Group

Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University

Aug 2019- on going

I work with Prof. Hartmut Geyer in the Legged Systems lab to investigate the dynamics and control of bipedal locomotion and develop robust control algorithms for bipedal walking and running on terrains with large uncertainties, with a focus on speed, robustness, and agility. My work also includes implementing evaluating these algorithms on bipedal robots of human scale (ATRIAS).

Research Assistant, Robotics and Intelligent Systems Lab

Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad

Jan 2018- July 2019

I have spent the last one and a half years at the Robotics lab at IIT Hyderabad working on legged locomotion under the guidance of Dr. R. Prasanth Kumar, Professor & Head, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, IIT Hyderabad on Control of Legged Robot Locomotion.

LVP-MITra Research Fellow

L V Prasad Eye Innovations, Hyderabad, India

June 2016-December 2017

I worked as an LVP-MITra fellow at LVPEI Center for Innovation in collaboration with MIT Media Lab to address the most pressing challenges in ophthalmology and vision science to build the next generation of eye care technologies with the potential to enable billions of people in India and worldwide to see.

SRM Team Humanoid

Team Leader

April 2016 – May 2017

I led SRM Team Humanoid, an undergraduate humanoid robotics team at SRM University. I dealt with the dynamics & control of the robots and spearheaded the development of three 20DOF Humanoid along with various other projects. I represented our university and country at various national and international competitions and won accolades.
