Sarvesh Rajesh Agrawal

Sarvesh R. Agrawal is a Research Fellow at the luxury lifestyle company, Bang & Olufsen, in Denmark. Born and raised in Mumbai, Sarvesh moved to the United States in 2014 to pursue a B.S. in audio production at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). During his time in Tennessee, Sarvesh developed a keen interest in psychoacoustics and sound reproduction. He received a master's degree in acoustics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2018.


As a part of the RealVision project, Sarvesh is enrolled as a PhD student at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in the Department of Photonics Engineering. He is investigating the impact of audio rendering systems on the experience of audiovisual immersiveness for domestic applications under the supervision of Dr. Søren Forchhammer and Dr. Søren Bech. The primary goal of the project is to understand how different audio systems (stereo, surround sound, ambisonics, binaural, etc.) influence the experience of immersion in audiovisual environments. This study will incorporate UHD, 4K, and HDR displays along with sophisticated audio systems in participatory and non-participatory applications to understand, assess, and quantify audiovisual immersion. Sarvesh's work could be applied to augment immersion and deliver convincing audiovisual experiences.
