Ahmed Qureshi

Assistant Professor Of Computer Science

Joined department: Fall 2021


Ph.D., University of California San Diego, Intelligent Systems, Robotics and Control (2021)
M.S., Osaka University, Robotics (2017)
B.S., National University of Science and Technology, Electrical Engineering (2014)

My research interests lie at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, focusing on scalable motion planning and control, manipulation, navigation, task planning, state-estimation, tactile perception, localization and mapping, active sensing, and sim-to-real transfer. We design, develop, and extend theory from the fields of deep learning, reinforcement learning, optimal control, computer vision, game theory, optimization, graphical models, statistics, information theory, physics, cognitive science, computer graphics, and other related areas.
