Visiting Faculty at IIT Madras
I am currently a visiting faculty in the Department of Applied Mechanics at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I am interested in problems at the interface of robotics, behaviour and soft-matter. To this end I build laboratory scale physical realizations, perform experiments and construct mathematical models to gain insights into the particular problem/phenomenon.
Outside work, I have a set of projects that keep me busy. You can access their progress through the projects page.
Write to me if you are interested in collaborating or would like to know more about any of these topics.
You can read our new tutorial titled "Revisiting linear filtering, the Bayesian paradigm & optimal state estimation" here.
Madurai Typeface by Agam Type Foundry is available for free download on Github.
"Rheomergy: Collective behavior mediated by active flow-based recruitment" is published in Proc. Roy. Soc. A (read the arXiv version here).
"The physical intelligence of ant and robot collectives" appears in SEAS highlights.
How can robots perform cooperative construction without central control?
Look at our recent: "Collective phototactic robotectonics", available now on arXiv.
