Ph.D. Candidate in the Aerospace Robotics and Controls Laboratory at Caltech.

I develop motion planning and control algorithms for nonlinear stochastic systems with applications to spacecraft guidance and control. I am a Space Engineer with demonstrated experience in developing and building flight systems, robotic systems, control design and implementation, and algorithm development for autonomy.

Previously, I worked as a Spacecraft Systems Design Engineer at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on the integration design and testing of the geostationary communication satellites GSAT-15 and GSAT-16.
