I am a Research Student advised by Prof. Abhinav Gupta at the Robotics Institute, CMU. I focus on building autonomous systems which effect meaningful change in their environment through selective contact. The long term goal is to make robots do all our unsafe, repetitive or boring tasks. These days I’m interested in how robots can quickly improve performance on long horizon manipulation tasks through online interaction or human feedback.
I’m applying to PhD programs in Fall 2023!
In my non-existent freetime, I lift weights 🏋️♂️, stretch out🤸, and catch up on the most recent Formula 1 race 🏎️ I’m always looking forward to nerd out/collaborate! Feel free to reach me over email: mohankus [at] cs [dot] cmu [dot] edu
