About Atharva Pusalkar

About me

I am graduate student in The Robotics Insitute at Carnegie Mellon University (2024). My work primarily lies in the intersection of embodied AI with intelligent interaction (CMU) and computer vision (DJS Racing). I also like to build software and systems (Open Robotics and Hello Robot) that make robotics and AI research more accessible to people around the world. I play with robots and like to build their brains (the software) and nerves (the electricals). In my free time, you will see me play tennis, listening to music or maybe both.

If you would like to contact me for potential project and startup collaborations, please feel free to drop me an email!

I also sketch and play the guitar as my hobbies.
