I am a Computer Science PhD candidate at USC. My research interests are in safe human-robot interactions, robot learning from demonstrations and verification of autonomous cyber-physical systems.
I was a research intern during Summer 2022 at SRI International’s Center for Vision Technologies (CVT), working on lifelong learning. Prior to joining the PhD program, I was a Researcher in the Intelligent Connected Systems (ICS) Division at Toyota North America - InfoTech Labs (formerly, Toyota InfoTechnology Center) where I worked on data-driven formal specification for connected vehicle applications using edge computing.
I graduated with a masters in Computer Science (Intelligent Robotics specialization) from USC in 2018 and received my bachelors from B.M.S College of Engineering, India in 2016.
I am also an electronic music producer under the alias Andy-Ruddh. My music consists of raw and hypnotic techno inspired by my favorite artists: Surgeon, Oscar Mulero, and Sleeparchive.
