Arjun completed his Ph.D. in Robotics from the University of Manchester, UK, specializing in landing mechanisms for Unmanned Air Vehicles. Prior to Mursion, he worked for several years as an academic researcher leading the ground vehicle robotic system for Team Tumbleweed, which was one of the six-finalists at the Ministry of Defense (UK) Grand Challenge.
During his academic career, he has contributed to several projects and manuscripts including the development of a robot to explore the Great Egyptian Pyramid, adaptive robots to catch fast-moving objects, and robots that can grasp objects of any shape. The latter parts of his academic career were focused on developing camera-based computer vision systems to detect faults in railroad tracks, aerial video gathering platforms for action recognition, and the bridging of virtual reality and robotics to impact social behavior in people.
Arjun's current interests involve coupling machine learning, psychology and the learning sciences with technological advancements in remote-operation, virtual reality, and control system theory to create high-impact real world applications.
