Roshan Suresh Kumar

Roshan is a PhD student in SEAK Lab since August 2019. He got his B.Tech. in Mechatronics at SRM University, Chennai, India and his M.S. in Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University. His undergraduate research was on the development of a single moving camera based stereo vision system for scene reconstruction. His Masters Thesis was on “Calibration of Linear Imager Camera for Relative Pose Estimation”.

His main work in the NSF funded project regarding Knowledge and Data Driven Design of Mechanical Metamaterials, a collaborative project between Dr. Selva of Texas A&M and Dr. Silbersetin of Cornell. He also works on tradespace exploration and optimization algorithms for VASSAR.

He has completed an internship at German Aerospace Center (DLR) at Braunschweig, Germany from June 1st, 2022 to August 24th, 2022. The topic of his internship was state space reduction for verifying spacecraft operational designs and his tasks were the formulation and improvement of different local and global deadlock checkers to detect the presence of deadlocks in state system representations of satellites and attempting to mitigate the state space explosion issue that arises from the deployment of one such deadlock checker (the Unfolding-based Dynamic Partial Order Reduction model checker). The internship was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Philipp Chrszon.
