Anish Bhattacharya

Roboticist & PhD Student

I am a doctoral student at GRASP at University of Pennsylvania, working with Professors Nikolai Matni and Vijay Kumar on problems surrounding autonomous robot vision and control.

Prior to this, I completed my MS Robotics at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Professor Sebastian Scherer on UAV autonomy with aerial manipulation applications. My MS thesis studied targeting a moving aerial object with a quadrotor fitted with just a monocular camera, using guidance algorithms like proportional navigation.
