I am now employed as a Senior Software Engineer at MagicLeap. MagicLeap develops industry-leading head-mounted AR devices. Checkout ML2: The most immersive AR headset for enterprise. I am in the headpose team based out of Zurich and I am currently working on SLAM related topics
In the past, I was employed as a Robotics Navigation Engineer at Rovenso SA (Apr 2020-Nov 2021). I had the opportunity to work on ground robot controllers for docking motion, amongst other topics in robotic navigation. Rovenso is a startup incubated at EPFL currently based near Fribourg, Switzerland. Rovenso is involved in building and deploying agile robots. I worked on developing SLAM system and autonomous navigation capabilities for our robotic platform ‘Roveo’.
I completed my PhD in Jan-2020 from the UAV Group of Robotics Institute (RI) at ‘Hong Kong University of Science & Technology’ (HKUST) in Hong Kong. My supervisor was Prof. Shaojie Shen in the ECE Dept of the University, a world-renowned expert in autonomous drones. I developed a CNN-based place recognition system for online recovery from kindap for visual-inertial SLAM for my thesis. Go here for a detailed overview of my thesis.
I am familiar and have hands-on experience with 3D geometry, stereo vision, place recognition, and object detection. I mostly do computer programming with C++ or Python. Some other packages that I am familiar include, OpenCV, ROS, Eigen, Ceres-solver, GTSAM, Keras/Tensorflow. For my opensource contribution, have a look at my Github profile. When I am not traveling I usually love to tinker with stuff, write about mathematics, and read. Explore my blog to know more.
Before joining the Ph.D. program at HKUST I spent one year doing research internships at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Switzerland; University of Warwick, UK and SenoCAD research GmbH, Netherlands. I have completed my Undergraduate (Bachelors of Technology) from The LNM Institute of Information Technology (LNMIIT), Jaipur, India in May 2012 in Communication and Computer Engineering (CCE).
