Kartik Ramachandruni

I am a 3rd Year PhD student in Robotics (Interactive Computing department) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am advised by Prof. Sonia Chernova as part of the Robot Autonomy and Interactive Learning (RAIL) lab. My long-term research interest lies in enabling robot agents to execute real-world tasks without user instruction in novel, unstructured environments.

I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur with a B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering, after which I worked as a robotics researcher for two years at the Tata Research and Innovation labs in Bangalore, India.

I am actively looking for research internships in Summer 2023!

I am currently working on a semantic rearrangement framework that determines a tidied environment configuration from partially arranged states without explicit goal specification. In addition to extending my current work, I am highly interested in developing generalizable semantic reasoning frameworks for other real-world long-horizon robot tasks. I have previously worked on research projects in human-robot collaborative task planning and vision-based imitation learning.
