About Me

I am a doctoral candidate at LS2N lab on “Cuspidal Robots: Analysis, classification and applications to 6R serial manipulators” under the guidance of Prof. Philippe Wenger and Prof. Damien Chablat. I completed my double Master’s degree in the Erasmus Mundus course, European Master on Advanced Robotics plus (EMARO+).

My master thesis was on optimal kinematic design of a parallel mechanism for otological surgery in collaboration with the Nantes Hospital. While working as Junior Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Jodhpur, I worked in Sensorless compliance in 6-dof parallel mechanisms and multi-agent load manipulation. During my initial corporate career, I worked as a mechanical design engineer at Grey Orange Pvt Ltd, a leading warehouse automation company in India.

Buzzwords that interest me: algebraic geometry, optimisation, neural network, design, control, motion planning, cuspidal robots
