Harish Ravichandar

Graduate Assistant

Electrical and Computer Engineering

My research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning, nonlinear systems, and estimation theory. I am broadly interested in identifying fundamental strategies that enable intelligent systems to learn in, and adapt to, complex natural environments. I am currently interested in developing methods with theoretical guarantees that enable robots to operate in varied-degrees of autonomy and collaborate with humans. I am a Ph.D. candidate, working with Dr. Ashwin Dani, in the Robotics and Controls Lab at the University of Connecticut (UConn). As part of my Ph.D. research, I have been developing algorithms to learn movement primitives from demonstrations and infer human intentions. I received my B.E. degree in Instrumentation and Control Engineering from Anna University, Chennai, India in 2012 and my M.S. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida in 2014.
