Shivansh Patel

I am an incoming Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UIUC. Earlier, I graduated with a B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering from IIT Kanpur. I am broadly interested in Computer Vision, Reinforcement Learning, Embodied AI, and Robotics.

Previously, I was a visiting scholar in GrUVi lab at Simon Fraser University working with Manolis Savva and Angel X. Chang. During my undergraduate stay at IIT Kanpur, I worked with Vinay P. Namboodiri on attention, explainability and uncertaintly in Vision and Language.
