Research Interests

I work on imitation and representation learning, robot grasping, and their large scale adoption with Fog and Cloud Robotics. My interests broadly revolve around developing machine learning techniques for solving real-world problems. The main scientific subjects I investigate include:

  • Machine Learning
  • Mixture Models
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Subspace Clustering
  • Optimization Techniques
