Desingh's research focuses on addressing problems in sensing and perceiving the world for robot grasping, manipulation, and navigation. More precisely, he focuses on providing perceptual capabilities for robots using deep learning and probabilistic techniques to enable them to interact with objects and perform tasks in unstructured environments. His research interests broadly lie at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, and machine learning.
