Keshav Bimbraw

Augmented Human Sensing Co-Op

Research Interests


Keshav Bimbraw received his B.E. degree in Mechatronics Engineering from Thapar University, Patiala, India, and his M.S. in Computer Software and Media Applications from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Robotics Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts. In the summer of 2022, he joined Nokia Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ as an Augmented Human Sensing Intern where he is currently working as a Co-Op as a part of the Data and Devices Group in the Artificial Intelligence Research Lab. A roboticist at heart, Keshav's research at Nokia Bell Labs has included an investigation into low-latency remote teleoperation of robotic arms using bioelectrical and physiological signals from the upper arm using advanced signal processing, machine learning and deep learning algorithms. He is very interested in exploring novel sensing techniques, algorithms, and low-latency pipelines for natural human-machine interaction.
