Sanket Kalwar

I am currently working as a graduate research assistant at the Robotics Research Center at IIIT Hyderabad, under the guidance of Prof. K Madhava from IIIT Hyderabad and external advisor Dr. Sourav Garg from The University of Adelaide, and Prof. Srinath Sridhar from Brown University .

At RRC, I have actively contributed to projects focused on enhancing 2D scene and video understanding along with 3D robotics perception. My work encompasses areas such as object detection, segmentation, and tracking. I am dedicated to advancing the field by infusing machines with visual intelligence, a goal that inspires my research endeavors.
