I work in the area of computer science, specifically robotics and artificial intelligence. I lead the robotics lab called CMANTIC at UNO. The technologies I work on offer immense potential and challenges for the future, and, are poised to become an integral part of society and our daily lives. My objective is to share my expertise with students and educators in the Central/South Asia region, and help them with familiarizing and bringing them up to speed with the new technology and challenges in these areas. I am also interested in identifying potential societal issues or problems in the South/Central Asia region that could benefit from the use (implementation) of our lab's research.
