I am a Robotics PhD candidate at WPI's Medical FUSION Lab, where my research focuses on the application of machine learning to ultrasound image processing. My interests lie in leveraging AI/ML to enable real-time unimodal and multi-modal biosignal-based predictions. My research has broad applicability in domains such as robotic teleoperation, AR/VR, rehabilitation robotics, robot-assisted surgery, and gaming.

I worked as a Research Intern at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories in Cambridge, Massachusetts under the Computational Sensing Division over Summer 2023. In the Summer and Fall of 2022, I worked as an Augmented Human Sensing Researcher (Intern/Co-Op) at Nokia Bell Labs' Artificial Intelligence Research Lab in the New York City Metropolitan Area.

Additionally, I have experience as an Active Noise Control Engineering intern at Bose (Automotive Systems Division) and as an Audio DSP Engineer. I hold a Master's in Music Technology from Georgia Tech (Spring 2019) and completed a research internship at IIT Delhi while pursuing my B.E. in Mechatronics Engineering at Thapar University. Resume. CV.
