I received my B.E. (Hons) degree in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology & Science Pilani, India in 2016. Currently, I am pursuing a direct-track Ph.D. degree with Prof. Tal Shima at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering in Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. My broad research interests revolve around the control and guidance of autonomous vehicles, operating individually or as a team.
