Krishna Murthy Jatavallabhula

PhD Candidate


I am a PhD student at Mila and the Robotics and Embodied AI Lab, advised by Liam Paull. My research strives to develop embodied agents that perceive, reason, and act intelligently. I aim to leverage our deep understanding of the rules of the world (physics, classical robotics, vision, graphics) to support modern deep learning machinery.

I’m fortunate to actively collaborate on projects with Derek Nowrouzezahrai’s group at McGill, Sanja Fidler’s group at NVIDIA, and Madhava Krishna’s group at IIIT Hyderabad.I am always interested to connect with people that share similar thoughts or research interests (drop me a line at <my-twitter-handle> At REAL and Mila, we have limited open spots for motivated interns with a strong background (please fill out this form if that’s you).

Pro-bono office hours

I’ve committed to set aside 2 hours a week, for mentoring underrepresented groups in robotics, computer vision, and deep learning. If this is you, and you’d like to brainstorm or seek feedback on research, grad school apps, or anything else, please fill out this form.
