Portrait of Nikunj Raghuvanshi

Nikunj Raghuvanshi

Senior Principal Researcher


I work in the areas of spatial audio, computational physics, and computer graphics. I enjoy researching fast approaches to simulate physics in virtual worlds to make them more believable. Over the last decade my focus has been sound synthesis and propagation. My research on Triton (opens in new tab) has brought accurate wave-based propagation effects to major games and virtual reality apps, experienced by millions of people worldwide, like Gears of War and Windows Mixed Reality Portal. Triton has now evolved into Project Acoustics (opens in new tab): a Microsoft product that makes the technology available for all.
