I am Akshit Saradagi. I am a Postdoctoral researcher in the Robotics and AI group at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. I recieved my M.S and Ph.D dual degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), Chennai, India. 

My current research focusses on application of Neuromorphic Computing and Control Barrier Functions-based methods to Robotics. I am also interested in distributed control of multi-agent systems and control under resource constraints.
