Achu Wilson

I am a roboticist, currently working at Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber Physical Systems at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. My research interests involve tactile sensing for robot manipulation, in-hand manipulation and reinforcement learning. I would say that I am more of a full stack roboticist and have experience building mechanical systems, designing electronics and writing code.

Prior to joining IISc I used to work ( and still collaborate) with the Perception Science Group at CSAIL MIT.

I am also one of the co-founders and was the CTO of Sastra Robotics. Sastra builds robots to automate the functional testing of devices: ranging from smartphones to cockpit avionic panels. Later I stepped down, as the startup matured, to pursue a career in academia. Since then, I also serve as a technical consultant for Sastra.
