ABOUT ME

I obtained my PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under Dr Thenkurussi Kesavadas. My dissertation was directed towards the development of an intelligent home-based robotic rehabilitation system for stroke patients. Currently, I work at Cargill as a Computer Vision Scientist.

I obtained an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Manipal University, India. Following which, I moved to the United States to pursue a masters in mechanical engineering from the University at Buffalo, NY. I enjoy computer programming and developing user interfaces and experiences. I have a profound interest in computer vision and reinforcement learning.
