I am a Postdoctoral fellow advised by Prof. L. Mahadevan at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. My primary research interests are in geometric and optimal control theory applied to multi-agent systems including engineered and biological collectives. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering at University of Maryland (UMD), advised by Prof. P. S. Krishnaprasad and was a recipient of the Clark School of Engineering Distinguished Graduate Fellowship. 

Previously, I received a Master of Science degree in Robotics, Systems and Control at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where my Masters' Thesis was supervised by Prof. Robert Riener at the Sensory Motor Systems Lab, and a Bachelor of Technology degree in Instrumentation and Control Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, India.
