About

MY BACKGROUND

I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering in Socially Assistive Robotics Group (SARG) at University of Nevada Reno. I work with Dr. David Feil-Seifer, utilizing AI for Human-Robot Interaction for Socially Assistive Robotics applications. Apart from research, I also actively involved in STEM outreach activities of your lab. Prior to Ph.D., I received my Master's in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Controls and Robotics from NYU Tandon School Engineering. I enjoy technology especially IoT, Robotics and combination of both (Automotive). Using my technical leadership skills, I like commercializing technology, bootstrapped an IoT company and played an important role in its recent merger with AntarIoT.

 

My interests lie in software, hardware and everything in between, worked on numerous hobby and class projects. Recently worked on an electric motorcycle mule based off of a scrapped Honda Karishma chassis.
