I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at Rutgers University. I am a part of the PRACSYS lab, advised by Kostas Bekris. I am broadly interested in applying machine learning algorithms to improve the efficiency of robotic planning. I am also excited about building robust, real-world robotics systems that integrate perception, planning and learning.

Prior to my PhD, I earned an MS in Computer Science from Rutgers. I earned my undergraduate degree in Computer Science & Engineering from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University. In summer 2018, I was an intern at Preferred Networks working with Wilson Ko and Kuniyuki Takahashi.
