JP Morgan Fellowship Award to Sanket Kamthe

Sanket Kamthe has been selected as a 2019 J.P. Morgan PhD Fellow. Congratulations!

Sanket Kamthe is a third-year PhD student at Imperial College London.

Sanket is focusing on reinforcement learning for robotics and control for his PhD. He is particularly interested in Safe Model-based Reinforcement Learning, where the agent learns to perform tasks while being aware of risks and uncertainties. He primarily works with Gaussian Processes for modeling system dynamics.

Sanket started his studies at Imperial College with an MSc in Advanced Computing. Before moving to the UK, he was a Marie Curie research fellow at the department of Applied Maths at University of Twente in the Netherlands. He also holds an MSc degree in Information and Communication Engineering from Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany and a BE in Electronics & Telecommunications from University of Pune, India. In his spare time Sanket volunteers with Imperial’s WOHL lab reach-out programs that inspire school students from public schools in London to take up STEM subjects.
