I am a postdoctoral researcher in the AMRL hosted by Joydeep Biswas. I defended my PhD in April 2022 at the University of Maryland where I worked with Dr. Dinesh Manocha in autonomous driving. I completed my Masters in CS from UMD in 2018 under the guidance of Dr. Tom Goldstein and bachelors in ECE from DTU, India in 2016.

My current research interests include robot planning, decision-making, and navigation in unstructured human environments, multi-agent RL, and autonomous driving.
