I lead the track understanding team at Nuro. We're building robots that deliver stuff to your home! My team uses machine learning for sequence modeling and computer vision to understand the fine-grained intent of the agents (pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles) in the world.
Previously, I got my Masters from the Robotics Institute at CMU, conducting research on multi-agent reinforcement learning (helping large robot teams learn to collaborate and be robust to individual failures), advised by Prof. Katia Sycara. I have an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Kanpur, India along with a minor in Artificial Intelligence. While doing my undergrad I co-founded Agilo Technologies (now Stempedia), where I developed an educational hardware prototyping platform for students. Best way to get in touch with me is email.
[Dec 2021] I'm now heading the track understanding effort at Nuro. We are hiring!
[July 2019] Started working as a machine learning engineer at Nuro. Nuro builds these self-driving vehicles for local B2C deliveries.
[Jan-May 2019] Graduated with my MS in Robotics, and published a few papers:
