Main: BharathSankaran


Bharath Sankaran is a PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Southern California. His thesis title is "Object Recognition and Pose Estimation as a Problem of Movement and Interaction". He joined the CLMC Lab in 2012. He also received an M.S in Computer Science (2015) from USC. Before coming to USC, Bharath received an M.S in Robotics from the University of Pennsylvania (2012), an M.E specializing in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park (2008) and a B.E in Mechanical Engineering from Anna University, India (2006). Bharath has also worked with the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon on the Riverine Mapping project (2010), with Bosch RTC on Shared Autonomy Systems (2011), with the Spatial Analysis Group at MERL on Invariant Image Matching (2015) and with the Computer Vision Group at Qualcomm Corp R&D on Relocalization for Visual-Inertial Odometry (2016). Apart from this, he held industry positions at Human Network Labs (Philadelphia, 2008) and AIS Automation (Dresden, GmbH 2009).
