Brief Bio [CV]

I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. John Lygeros. I earned my PhD from University of California, San Diego, where my advisor was Prof. Jorge Cortes. Prior to that, I received Bachelors of Technology in 2008 and Masters of Science in 2010, both in Mechanical Engineering, from IIT Delhi and ETH Zurich, respectively.
