I’m Tejus, a first-year Masters student at the Robotics Institute, CMU. Before this, I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at IIT Kharagpur in 2019.

My primary research interest is in planning and perception for robotics. I would like to develop robots that can operate reliably in complex unstructured environments. There are several interesting problems involved in achieving this goal - developing planners with rigorous guarantees for high-dimensional search spaces, designing robust and interpretable learning agents, etc.

For the last three years, I had been involved with the Autonomous Ground Vehicle (AGV) Research Group at IIT Kharagpur. I have worked on the perception and planning modules, and developed algorithms for lane detection and helped in implementing path planning algorithms for our lab’s test vehicles.

I’m also an active contributor to JuliaImages, a popular computer vision library in Julia. I developed the ImageSegmentation package as my GSoC project last summer.
