I am currently pursuing my PhD at the Robotics and AI team of the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. Currently my research direction is focused on developing exploration and mapping algorithms to enable autonomous exploration of caves, lava tubes and voids of the planetary bodies. Developing autonomy solutions for collaborative multi robot exploration, search and rescue operations paints bigger picture of my inspiration for researching in the world of robotics. I received my Master's degree in Space Science and  Technology from Luleå University of Technology, Sweden and Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering from UPES, India.
