” Bitten by a robot bug in teenage, now I often see robots in my dreams. “
I graduated from Govt. Engineering College,Sreekrishnapuram under University of Calicut with a Bachelors in Electronics and Communication. Since then I taught myself theories of robotics, computer vision and AI from Books, Internet, MOOCs and making & breaking robots. I have been working with real robots for the past 6 years and I have co-founded a company.(Sastra Robotics). My work at Sastra consists of using robot manipulators for automated device testing. We manufacture and customize robot arms for testing HMI Panels, Touchscreen devices, consumer electronics etc.
I am looking forward for a graduate research program( PhD !!!). My research interests include highly dynamic and agile robots, personal robotics, compliant and direct drive actuation for human safe personal robots, manipulation planning etc. If any of the professors are reading this and is interested in me, I am always ready for a talk.
I spend most of the time forcing some stubborn robot to do something meaningful. When I am not with the robots, you can find me reading something or exploring new places. My reading list spans from technical journals and magazines to philosophy and life. In short I am a voracious reader.
I am also a “good procrastinator”, who puts away less important stuffs of life for the bigger ones.
” Be unique, stay away from the crowd, stay close to Robots “
