Work Experience

Postdoctoral Research Associate

University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg


Working under the guidance of Prof. Holger Voos at the Automation and Robotics Research Group of the SnT center, Unversity of Luxembourg. Researching on Mult-Modal Multi-Abstraction Situational Awareness for mobile robots focussed mostly on real world using RGB/RGBD Cameras and 3D Lidar sensors. 

Navigation and Perception Robotics Engineer

Blue Ocean Robotics, Odense (Denmark)


Researched on implementing a robust Visual SLAM algorithm with map generation and re-utilization capabilities for localization and navigation of mobile robotic platforms like GOBE and UVD-R in large and dynamic indoor environments. 

Postdoctoral Researcher

Computer Vision and Aerial Robotics Group,
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid (Spain)


Researched on the Challenge 1 of the Mohamed Bin Zayed International Robotics Competition (MBZIRC) 2020. The challenge consisted of complete autonomous interception of a ball from a target aerial robot flying at speeds of 8-5 m/s as well exploding balloons present in the arena. Our team won the Third Prize in the Grand Challenge of the Competition detaching the ball from the target aerial robot and exploding several balloons.  The main research areas I contributed were:
  • State Estimation of the Aerial Robot
  • Future Trajectory Estimation of the Target Aerial Robot
  • State Machine for Exploding Balloons

Researcher and PhD Student

Computer Vision and Aerial Robotics Group,
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid (Spain)


During my PhD, I researched on the Indoor Localization of aerial robots using several computer vision and sensor fusion techniques. One of my notable researches included robust indoor localization of aerial robots using several semantic cues such as chairs, tables.
Additionally, I participated in several research projects such as Inspection of a Thermal Power Plant using an autonomous aerial robot as well as Inspection of Airplanes using an autonomous aerial robot. I have been the team leader in the International Micro-Aerial Vehicles competition (IMAV 2017), where our team stood second. An important team member in IMAV 2016, where our team was the only one to perform a complete autonomous mission.
I actively worked on development and maintenance our ROS-based software framework called Aerostack. Using this framework we developed several algorithms for autonomous navigation of aerial robots in indoor environments.

Visiting PhD Student

Aerospace Controls Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston (United States)


I worked as a visiting student at the Aerospace controls Lab at the MIT. I researched on the Semantic Localization techniques for aerial robots in the indoor environments. The developed semantic SLAM algorithm was capable of running on-board the aerial robot and accurately estimating the pose of the robot at speeds of about 2m/s.

Assistant Operations Manager

Airpix – Unleashing Aerial View, Mumbai (India)

As Assistant Operations Manager at Airpix, I had 3 main roles:

  • Designing and assembling several customizable Quadcopter systems
  • R&D on several Unmanned Aerial Systems
  • Data collection (Collection of aerial data for several clients)
