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. I'm grateful to be supported by the NSF GRFP.

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.
