I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University. I am a member of the Autonomous Agents and Intelligent Robots (AAIR) research group, advised by Dr. Siddharth Srivastava. I research key Artificial Intelligence principles to help build efficient systems that can reason about, plan, and act under uncertainty.
Developed a framework for imposing constraints on an AI agent in a world with nosiy observations.
Evaluated overhand, top-to-random, Knuth, transposition, thorp, and riffle card shuffling techniques.
Implemented a visual-feedback based method to guide the Fetch mobile manipulator’s end-effector to reach the target object without using AR-markers.
Performed exploratory data analysis, and compared classification of ATLAS experiment events using advanced machine learning techniques such as XGBoost and neural networks.
Comprehensive implementation of AI methods such as DFS, BFS, UCS, A* search, minimax, expectimax, and alpha-beta pruning to create Pacman in a multi-agent environment using Python.
Built & evaluated denoising capabilities of a denoising autoencoder with different levels of noise. Trained a stacked autoencoder layer-by-layer in an unsupervised fashion, & fine-tuned the network with the classifier.
