Hi! My name is Ishan and I’m a Senior Research Scientist at Motional where I work on developing novel perception and prediction algorithms for self-driving cars. I previously worked at Argo AI on the perception team building deep neural networks for 3D object detection and segmentation.

My main interests lie in robotics and artificial intellegence research at the intersection of perception and planning. I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2019. While a student, I worked under Joydeep Biswas in the Autonomous Mobile Robotics Lab and then under Shlomo Zilberstein in the Resource Bounded Reasoning Lab.
