I’m an Engineer/Scientist II working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in the field of AI, Computer Vision, and Robotics. I have 3 years of experience in research industry developing technologies helping mankind. I earned my master’s degree with a thesis from the UNC Charlotte in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. During my master’s program, I worked with Dr. James M. Conrad (Professor and 2020 IEEE-USA President) on a thesis entitled “Human-Robot Cooperation Using EEG Signals with Self-Learning”. At UNC Charlotte, I won two prestigious awards i.e., Joanna R. Baker Memorial Fellowship and Outstanding Teaching Assistant for the year 2017-2018.
My research mainly focuses on the intersection between Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics. To me, the most exciting research topics are those inspired by challenging real-world problems. I have published 10 conference and journal papers and had an opportunity to write 2 book chapters that are accepted for publication and yet to be published. I have designed 2 courses with lab experiments for students of EEE-MSRIT, Bangalore.
