I am an undergraduate research student majoring in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Petroleum and Energy Studies. My main areas of researches are Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Robotics but I'm highly enthusiastic to explore different fields alongside.

Currently, I'm working as a Research Assistant at Human-Computer Interaction Lab, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, Canada under the supervision of Dr. Daniel J. Rea in the domain of Human-Robotics Interaction where I'm involved in developing novel approaches for maintaining flow in teleoperated robot navigation.
At the same time, I'm also working as a Research Assistant at Robotics Research Center, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) under the supersvision of Dr. Madhava Krishna, Dr. Harikumar Kandath, and Dr. Ravi Kiran Sarvadevabhatla where my work broadly focused on the following projects:

Before IIIT-H, I was an undergraduate researcher at Robotics Lab, UPES where I worked on the autonomous terrestrial robot localization, and map building along with Neel Adwani, and Dr. Ashish Karn. Even before then, I worked as a Research Intern at Networks Research Lab, International Institute of Information Technology, Delhi (IIIT-D) under the supervision of Dr. Arani Bhattacharya.

Apart from pursuing my academic interests, I am extremely passionate about open source which you can know more about in Open Source section below.


Yes! I love to do research project! Why? Some reasons have been nicely summed up here.

I find it fascinating that starting with bulding blocks in Probabilistic and Statistical thinking and throwing in some Linear Algebra and Calculus in the mix, we can accomplish extremely powerful function approximators that can emulate knowledge-based reasoning. At present I am focusing on laying down firm roots in the basics, and taking an applied look at Artificial Inelligence and Robotics. Hence, I'm inclined to study various fundamental problems that enables Autonomous Flying of UAV's, and advancing control systems. For instance, my recent work at IIIT-H investigates about grouping different fields together to produce better outcome, automating civil inspection of the buildings through UAVs through combination of Deep Learning Models and Point Clouds.
Further, I also enjoy building robotic systems to demonstrate various ideas in practice that could span the entire world with optimised solutions

Open Source

Hence, I've been involved into open source as a open source research strategist and tech diversity community management specialist, developing new, and improving existing, computer-based technologies, systems, and solutions in advanced open source ecosystems. I am more of a research person and love doing researches around the products and communities. Contributing through unique ideas is my biggest encouragement to myself. Working in the field of research publishing, media and development of cornucopia of technologies that are inclined towards help in the learning of a better future. Being astute and sagaciously involved with open source stuff I love devoting time towards mentoring in various programs that helps build OSS/FOSS technological solutions for a better tomorrow in open-source ecosystem.

I have been working quite a while with various communities in the open-source, helping them maintain good relationships with external communities and projects, organizing meetups and events generating FOSS ecosystem, supporting the community in the outreach, creation of tools, and process with good relationships.
I help organizations understand, use, release, and contribute to free and open-source software in a way that’s good for both their end-users and for the community.
