Suvansh Sanjeev

I am a first-year PhD student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am advised by Zico Kolter and Zac Manchester. I am interested in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and optimization. I graduated from UC Berkeley, where I worked with Professors Sergey Levine and Claire Tomlin in the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab on deep RL and safe learning.

Research

I am currently working on differentiable optimization and physics simulators. My past research worked towards bringing learning to the real world. I have worked on developing more natural means of task specification for deep RL to avoid the burden of manually engineered reward functions, as well as on developing data-efficient learning techniques that allow for safety guarantees throughout the learning process.

Teaching

I received the 2020-2021 Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award at UC Berkeley, where I was fortunate enough to serve as the head teaching assistant for the incredible Professors Gireeja Ranade, Alexandre Bayen, and Babak Ayazifar.

One of three lectures I delivered during the Fall 2019 offering of EECS 127/227A can be found here.
