About me

I am currently pursuing my Master’s in the Erasmus Mundus course, European Master on Advanced Robotics plus (EMARO+).  I am involved in Optimal kinematic design of a parallel mechanism for Otological surgery in collaboration with Nantes Hospital. I have previously worked as a Junior Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Jodhpur. I worked on sensorless compliance in 6-dof parallel mechanisms and multi agent load manipulation. 

I also have a professional experience at Grey Orange Pvt Ltd, a leading warehouse automation company in India. I am interested in design, control and optimization of manipulators.


I will be starting my PhD in LS2N lab on “Cuspidal Robots” under the guidance of Prof. Philippe Wenger and Prof. Damien Chablat.

Master in Robotics Engineering (Advanced Robotics)

University Degli Studi di Genova, Italy
Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France.
Erasmus Mundus Course of European Master on Advanced Robotics Plus (EMARO +).

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical)

Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. CGPA: 8.63/10. Awarded G.P Birla scholarship for 6 consecutive semesters for excellent academic records.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Junior Research Fellow - Oct 2017 to Jun 2018

Indian Institute of Technology, Jodhpur. Worked on parallel manipulators, kinematic and dynamic analysis of manipulators and sensorless active active compliance in them.

Awards

Awarded Euro 10,000 owing to performance during pre-master’s experience. Only 12 students from Programme countries and at most 2 students from India were awarded this scholarship.

Selected for full tuition fee waiver and euro 900 per month scholarship.

I chose EMARO+ programme and thus did not avail this scholarship.

Sakal India awards Rs. 70,000 as Interest free loan scholarship to deserving students as an assistance for their post-graduation.

Awarded 50 to 75% fee waiver for excellent academic records in consecutive 6 semesters. 

Awarded Rs. 10,000 for being the winner of chess tournament in junior year. I was also the institute chess captain in my senior year. 

Currently

 I am in the last stage of my Master’s thesis and the topics in current focus are:

  • Nelder-Mead algorithm for mechanism design
  • Workspace analysis with passive limits

Apart from work, I am also focused on:

  • Ancient Indian philosophy
  • Yoga - Introduction to the basics

NEXT IN LINE.....

  • Coupling graph theory with mechanism design
  • Lie Algebra, Algebraic geometry
  • Creating my own library for mechanism in manim
