Krishna Murthy Jatavallabhula

PhD Candidate


I am a PhD candidate at Mila and the Robotics and Embodied AI Lab, advised by Liam Paull. My research vision is to enable embodied agents to perceive, reason, and act intelligently. A recurring theme in much of my work is to leverage our understanding of the world (physics, “classical” robotics, vision, graphics) to support modern deep learning machinery.

I’m fortunate to actively collaborate with Derek Nowrouzezahrai, Sanja Fidler, Florian Shkurti, and other excellent researchers.

My research is supported by an NVIDIA graduate fellowship.

Pro-bono office hours

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