I am an AI Robotics Engineer at Nimble Robotics developing state-of-the-art AI technologies for automating robotic warehouses. Prior to this, I was an AI Research Engineer/Scientist working on Reinforcement Learning for robot navigation and manipulation at Intel Labs in Matthias Mueller's group.
I completed my BTech in Electronics and Commmunication Engineering and Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati in 2019. I have worked on Socially-Aware robot navigation at ATR IRC Lab, Japan in Dr. Norihiro Hagita's group and on 3D reconstruction and segmentation of medical images at Chubu University, Japan in Prof. Yuji Iwahori's group.
I am interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI) agents that can act in the world, learn from their experiences and adapt to changes in the environment. Such versatile agents would ultimately improve the quality of human life - robots would provide relief in disasters, perform daily chores in homes and help perform surgeries. I have explored areas of Reinforcement Learning, Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Probabilistic Modeling and hardware design of mechanisms/electronics.
Sim2Real transfer of low-level control policy for self-driving and drifting using q-learning. The project involved creating a simulation environment and training a policy in simulation, modifying the hardware of an RC car, setting up visual trackers, integrating the system with Robot Operating System (ROS) and finally transferring the simulation policy to the real world.
