About Me

I received an Integrated dual degree in M.Sc. (Hons.) Physics & B.E. (Hons.) in Electrical & Electronics from Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani Goa Campus in August, 2010. After that I explored the research in the fields of image processing applications like HCI, computer vision, radio astronomy through some research projects and internships.
In May 2015, I graduated with a Masters in Computer Science from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. My recent work is in autonomous flight systems involving: motion planning and local collision avoidance for Micro-Aerial Vehicles; navigation in GPS-denied environments etc. I have been able to pursue research in this interesting field as part of the GAMMA group at UNC and internship at National Institute of Aerospace and NASA Research Langley. 

I recently participated in the Space Studies Program SSP 2015 by International Space University and NASA Glenn Research.
