I am Sai Prabhakar, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in masters in robotics. I completed my undergrad at Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras.

My masters thesis with Prof. Manuela Veloso and Dr. Stephanie Rosenthal was on making the robots explain its actions and experience.

Current Work

I am currently working with Boyang "Albert" Li in Disney Research Pittsburgh on Natural Language Processing.

Research interests

My primary interest is Robot Learning, i.e., Machine Learning integrated with Robotics.
