Short Biography

I received a B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 1999, where I worked with Roddam Narasimha on applying wavelet transforms to Navier-Stokes equations to detect coherent structures in jet flow. I recieved my MS in 2001 and PhD in 2005 from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Mike Erdmann and Matt Mason at the Manipulation Lab. For my MS thesis, I built the Mobipulator, a desktop manipulator that used its wheels to manipulate everyday objects. For my PhD thesis, I built robust controllers for dynamic manipulation under Coulomb friction. I founded the Personal Robotics Lab (PRL) in 2006 where my students and I are developing perception, planning, and learning algorithms that enable robots to accomplish useful manipulation tasks in dynamic and cluttered indoor environments. I was also a Senior Research Scientist at Intel Labs Pittsburgh from 2006-11 where I started and led Intel's research efforts in robotics.
