I did my undergraduate studies at IIT Kanpur, India in Electrical Engineering, followed by a Masters in Robotics and Autonomous Systems at EPFL, Switzerland. During my Master studies, I worked with Prof. Stefan Schaal at USC and MPI Tuebingen for my Master thesis on dynamic movement primitives. I am currently a PhD student at CMU and MPI, Tuebingen. My research interests are legged robots and control of legged systems. I am particularly interested in using machine learning for controlling these robots.
