Bharathkumar Hegde

PhD Student, Trinity College Dublin

Biography:I completed my bachelor’s degree in Information Science from UVCE Bengaluru and completed my master’s degree in Computer Science from Trinity College Dublin. During my bachelor’s degree, I developed a habit of computer programming by attending multiple national level hackathons and coding contests. Before pursuing my master’s degree, I worked in Commvault Systems as a Senior Development Engineer. Now, during my PhD, I will be working on methods to ensure safety for MARL motion controllers in Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) to change lanes. Apart from academics, I am also interested in playing cricket, football, badminton and marathons. I have volunteered to help organise a variety of office events, college festivals, and club activities.
