About Me

Hello! My name is Jay Patrikar. I am a PhD student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University advised by Dr Sebastian Scherer. I am part of the AirLab and the Field Robotics Center.

My research lies at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Field Robotics and Aerospace Engineering. My current research efforts are focused on developing tools and algorithms that enable safe operations of mobile robots in critical environments without sacrificing performance.

Previously, I have completed my Master of Science in Robotics (MSR) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Before CMU, I completed my Masters and Bachelor of Technology in Engineering from the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur where I was advised by Dr Mangal Kothari in the Intelligent Guidance and Control Laboratory.

I am passionate about aviation. I currently hold a FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot License and a FAA Part 61 Student Pilot License. I am also the President of The Flying Club, a CMU community organization for promoting general aviation.

Here is my Curriculum Vitae.
