Tanmay Agarwal


I am a second-year Masters Student at Stanford University advised by Prof. Fei-Fei Li and Prof. Jiajun Wu. At Stanford, I closely work with Dr. Ruohan Gao and Dr. Ruohan Zhang on multisensory robotics, developing embodied AI applications using vision, audio and touch.

Previously, I was a Computer Vision Engineer at Sentera where I worked on anomaly detection in plants, and an undergraduate research assistant at Interactive Robotics and Vision Lab, advised by Prof. Junaed Sattar, where I conducted research in underwater robotics. In a previous life, I also hunted for dark matter in the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SCDMS) lab advised by Dr. Priscilla Cushman.

Outside of research, I previously co-authored the bi-weekly newsletter for Gradient, a community-led publication focused on reporting the latest in AI. I also spent 2 years on the Board of the National Association of Engineering Student Councils (NAESC), where I helped develop the DE&I strategy of the national student-run non-profit. I also love hiking, films, and standup comedy.
