My name is Abhinav Garg, and I am currently a student at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. I will be graduating in 2017 with a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering.
Although I have fairly diverse academic interests, I am at present focussing on multi-agent systems and their control. Broadly, my research interests lie primarily in Dynamics and Control, but I keep trying as many different fields as I can because I am of the belief that all Science and Technology is cool, and there isn't enough that one can do.
I started this web-page during the end of sophomore year, driven by my learnings during some cool internships in the past winters and summers. Since then, I have been sort of a hobbyist web developer, this webpage being the prime example.
This webpage summarises my academic and non-academic pursuits. You can find details about the courses that I have taken, the projects I am working (and have worked) on, and the kind of professional experience that I've had. I also (plan to) blog, and hopefully will be able to stay active enough for there to be something useful.
Academics is probably my forte, but I am actively involved in a lot of activities outside of it. I am a language enthusiast (spoken and coded likewise), I play the guitar and sing, and as for sports, I am into running, swimming and squash. I have also held various office posts so far, which have helped me develop skills necessary to work in teams and lead.

New semester's going pretty great so far! Today, I pushed some content changes to the page, and am considering overhauling the design soon. The coursework is pretty hectic, no doubt, but all the courses that I've taken are of immense relevance to my interests. I've also been running, and can say that it is one of the most significant changes that the new year has brought. There's a new tab on the page now, Running
- where you can check how I've been doing.

I am starting with my winter work at the Molecular Parisitology Lab
at IIT Bombay. It is a Science excursion that I am taking, putting to use whatever I learnt in the course BB 405 (Molecular Biology). It will also be my first significant exposure to wet biology. I'll be doing this along with continuing work on my BTP - entailing a busy, but fulfulling Winters.

A substantial semester has pulled to an end - more so because of how project centric it was as compared to course centric. The presentations for my B.Tech. Project and Supervised Learning Project went well, and I had interesting discussions with my guides and examiners. I hope to emulate and improve on this in the upcoming semesters, where work regarding my BTP intensifies. Lots to look forward to.

I have decided to convert to the Dual Degree Programme. This changes my graduation year from 2016 to 2017, when I will be graduating with both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from IIT Bombay. The main objective behind this move was to undertake more research experience as I am really enjoying the projects that I've taken this semester. Hope it all turns out great.
