PostDoc, MEAM '15 - Associate Professor, University of Maryland

I work in robotics, with a focus on algorithms that enable mobile robots to actively sense and gather data in environments. I also work on developing systems for applications in earth sciences: precision agriculture and environmental monitoring.

Between October 2014 and July 2015, I was a Post-doctoral researcher at the GRASP lab at University of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Vijay Kumar.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota in September 2014. My Ph.D. adviser was Prof. Volkan Isler and I was a part of the Robotic Sensor Networks lab. My Ph.D. dissertation was on Placement and Motion Planning Algorithms for Robotic Sensing Systems.

I obtained my Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics and Telecommunication from College of Engineering, Pune, India. At COEP, I was part of the Robot Study Circle lab.
