Sanjiban is currently starting his second year as a graduate student in the Research Masters program at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. He works with Sebastian Scherer and Sanjiv Singh to develop motion planning and perception for autonomous helicopters and UAVs. Over the last year he has worked on safely landing a helicopter after engine failure and investigating the use of onboard sensors to land an autonomous helicopter on a moving ship at sea. He is currently working on flying a UAV inside the narrow corridors of a ship. Before coming to Carnegie Mellon, Sanjiban graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur) with a combined Bachelors/Master degree in Control Systems Engineering. At IIT, Sanjiban designed a team of soccer playing robots and led the team into an international competition. As an undergrad he had internships at both the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University (coverage planning algorithms that account for unexpected obstacles), and at the University of Thessaly in Greece (SLAM and route planning in the field). Sanjiban has been passionate about the development of robotics in India, organizing and leading workshops at a grass roots level. In addition he has been actively involved in entrepreneurship, partnering with startup companies and numerous workshops to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge and assistance. Sanjiban is eager to continue to a PhD in Robotics after completion of his Masters degree.
