I am a PhD candidate advised by Prof. Panagiotis Tsiotras and Prof. Seth Hutchinson.

I apply techniques from optimal control, reinforcement learning, and differential games to address problems pertaining to autonomous vehicles, emphasizing safe planning and airspace security.

Previously, I worked with Dr. Matheen Siddiqui at Foresight AI Inc. on motion planning and driving decision algorithms & software. During my masters at IIT Kanpur, I worked with Dr. Mangal Kothari on pursuit-evasion games and UAV guidance techniques.
