Lecturer in Computer Science (Robotics)

I am a Lecturer in Computer Science. I received my BTech in Electronics and Communication Engineering and MTech In Microelectronics and VLSI (Electronics and Communication Engineering). I also received my MSc in Robotics, Autonomous, and Interactive Systems, with a specialism in Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Computation (School of Engineering and Physical Sciences) and a Ph.D. in Robotics (Electronics and Electrical Engineering).

My expertise is in robotics, and I am specifically interested in autonomous robots, telepresence robots, drones, and bio-inspired robots.

Teaching and supervision


  • Software Engineering
  • Specialist Project
  • IoT and Robotics
  • Product development
  • Computer Architecture and Networks


  • Computing Project
  • MSc Project
  • Professional Work Placement

Research interests for potential research students

  • Robot kinematics and control
  • Navigation in an unknown environment
  • Environmental mapping
  • Bioinspired computation
  • Designing robots that mimic nature


My current research interests include robot control, navigation in unknown environments, pattern recognition from robot vision environmental mapping, etc. This wide range of robotics research has broader applications, including monitoring remote terrains (using remotely operated vehicles – ROVs and drones), disaster-ridden areas where immediate manual intervention is impossible, precision agriculture, etc.
