Research Interests: Optimization (Mixed Integer, Non linear), Machine Learning and AI in Robotics & Healthcare Applications.
I envision enabling ease of robot operation by laymen to an extent where the user manual becomes unnecessary. I study integration of algorithms with hardware design for applications in medical robotics and healthcare. I aim to develop models for human-machine collaboration, skill-augmentation, semi-supervised autonomy and healthcare decision support. My work employs and contributes to techniques in non-convex discrete optimization and representation learning.
In my Ph.D., I have primarily worked on algorithmic solutions for challenges in:
