Siddhant Haldar

I am a second year PhD student at the CILVR (Computational Intelligence, Learning, Vision and Robotics) group at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University. I work with Prof. Lerrel Pinto and my research interests lie in the area of generalizable AI, with a focus on robotics and reinforcement learning.

Previously, I completed an Integrated Bachelor's and Masters Degree in Electrical Engineeing at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur. My previous internships include working on causal inference at Microsoft Research and IBM Research, adversarial attacks with Prof. Atul Prakash at MIDAS, University of Michigan, and object detection with Prof. Zheng Liu at ISDPRL Lab, University of British Columbia. My Master's thesis was on the topic of action quality assessment (AQA) with Prof. Brendan Morris at RTIS Lab, University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I did my Bachelor's thesis on the topic of attention-guided video inpainting with Dr. Avisek Lahiri and Prof. Pabitra Mitra at IIT Kharagpur. I also worked on developing the perception and control system modules for self-driving cars at the Autonomous Ground Vehicle Lab, IIT Kharagpur under the supervision of Prof. Debashis Chakravarty. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, reading and traveling.
