Hi, I'm Sahit! I build intelligent robots.

I'm a fourth year studying Computer Science at Georgia Tech with concentrations in Artificial Intelligence and Theoretical Computer Science.

My interests include motion planning for robotics, reinforcement learning, and online learning algorithms. My research is currently in the Robot Learning Lab where I study the application of Gaussian Proccesses in real-time motion planning. Additionally, I work on understanding how we can use policy optimization methods for motion planning.

Previously, I have worked with the Search Based Planning Lab at Carnegie Mellon University as a part of the Robotics Institute Summer Scholars program. I am currently also affiliated with the Human-Centered Robots Lab at the University of Washington where I was an intern for the summer of 2019.

Outside of research, I take on the role of Internal Operations manager for The Agency, Georgia Tech's Machine Learning research club for undergraduates. I was formerly a software lead for RoboJackets, Georgia Tech's competitive robotics team.

When I'm not playing with robots, I like to read, listen to music, shoot photos, run, boulder, and play tennis/squash/ping pong.
