I am an Associate Professor in the School of Computing at the University of North Florida. My current research is focused on the following topics: multi-robot (informative) path planning, coordination among multiple robots, and motion learning.
If you are an undergraduate/graduate student interested in working on robotics projects, please send me an email along with your CV.
I received my Ph.D. from the Computer Science Department of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (May 2017). I was a research assistant in the CMANTIC Lab. My advisor was Dr. Prithviraj Dasgupta. Our research on the ModRED project was recently featured in NASA’s Stimuli 2016-17 Magazine (link). In the summer of 2016, I worked at The MathWorks Inc. as a robotics software engineer intern as part of their robotics team. Over the summer of 2014, I worked with Dr. Nikolaus Correll at the University of Colorado Boulder on Droplet swarm robots (Video).
Before coming to the USA for my Ph.D., I completed my Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Computer Science and Engineering (2011), from Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata, India; which is affiliated with West Bengal University of Technology, India, and also worked as a research assistant in the ACMU Unit at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India under the guidance of Dr. Krishnendu Mukhopadhyaya.
