Kunal Shah is a Ph.D. Candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.
After receiving his B.S in Mechanical Engineering from UCSD, he moved to New York City to lead the new Precision Fabrication Facility at the Rockefeller University. There he managed a machine shop which designed and built custom tools for biomedical research.
Kunal’s most recent work has been in autonomous survey planning for wildlife monitoring. The planning project resulted in a complete field expedition to survey a remote colony of Adélie penguins on Ross Island, Antartica. This work is currently being extended to larger survey areas and has produced an open source survey planner
Kunal’s research interests include multi-robot collision avoidance, path planning, and trajectory optimization
