I am currently a post-doc in the Applied Math group at SEAS, Harvard. I am interested in understanding the behavioral rules behind the embodied intelligence of animals and finding ways to replicate them in artificial systems. I am equally interested in designing smart materials that leverage geometry for predictive response. To this end I use experiments with animals, build laboratory scale physical models and develop mathematical models to gain insights into a particular phenomena.
