My thesis was on “Temporal potential function approach for path planning in dynamic environments”. I completed my PhD in Computer Science again under the guidance of Dr. Manfred Huber in summer of 2016. My dissertation was on "Building 3D shape primitive based object models from range images".

Over the course of my PhD studies, I worked as a TA for many courses. I was also an instructor teaching Artificial Intelligence - I to Graduate and Undergraduate students at UTA during Fall of 2012 and 2015. I also taught STEM Engineering Research and Precalculus to High School students as part of the TRANSITIONS Summer Bridge program at UTA in 2010 and 2011 and was a tutor at a Help desk for students taking introductory programming courses. After graduation I worked as an Adjucnt Professor teaching Artificial Intelligence - I in Spring 2017.
