Short BiographyI am a Research Assistant at Idiap Research Institute and a Phd student at EPFL, Switzerland. I am doing my research at Robot Learning and Interaction group (RLI) under the supervision of Dr.Sylvain Calinon. My research lies at the intersection of data-efficient machine learning, control engineering, and robotics. In particular, I am exploring the usage of low-rank approximation techniques (aka tensor methods) to develop algorithms for robot control and motion planning that were previously considered to be intractable.
EducationI received my Bachelore's degree in the year 2013 in Mechanical Engineering from Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, Mysore,India and a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering in the year 2016 from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
