Hi! I am Utkarsh Mishra. I am a dcotoral candidate in Robotics at Georgia Tech with Dr. Yongxin Chen from Summer 2022. I graduated from IIT Roorkee with a B. Tech. Mechanical Engineering in 2021. I have worked with Prof. Matthew E. Taylor at the Inverse Reinforcement Learning lab, University of Alberta and Prof. Shishir Kolathaya at the Stochastic Robotics lab, Indian Institute of Science. I am particularly interested in exploring self-supervised task representations and planning based supervision to achieve efficient robot learning and safe autonomy. Recently, I have finished my work on exploring accelerated hardware-in-loop reinforcement learning and locomotion in legged robots. Previously, I have collaborated with Prof. Auke Ijspeert and Dr. Dimitar Stanev at the Biorobotics Laboratory, EPFL.
