Siddharth Mayya

PostDoc, MEAM '21 - Amazon Robotics

Siddharth Mayya is currently an applied scientist at Amazon Robotics in Boston, MA. Prior to this, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics working with Vijay Kumar from 2019-2021. His research focuses on the design of scalable and resilient algorithms for robot swarms operating under difficult conditions – ranging from extreme sensory limitations to environmental and adversarial disturbances. Currently, he is investigating how heterogeneity in the capabilities of the robots within a team can be leveraged to achieve multi-task coordination which is resilient to environmental disturbances as well as failures occurring among the robots.
