Akshay Jindal


Akshay Jindal is from India where he received his Bachelor’s and Master’s in Information Technology from International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore in 2017. During his Master’s, Akshay worked on tensor-based analysis of LiDAR point clouds to improve their structural classification, developed new techniques for 3D reconstruction using user-guided methods and built tools for Visual Analytics involving point/glyph rendering for large-scale data.

After graduation, Akshay joined the Research and Innovation Team at WalmartLabs, Bangalore (India) as a Software Engineer. His work there was primarily focused on the development of real-time graphics, particularly, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Working there, he gained experience in building large-scale procedural virtual worlds, performance optimizations for VR and programming with low-level graphics APIs to build AR experiences on native mobile applications.

As of January 2019, Akshay has joined the Graphics and Interaction Group at the University of Cambridge as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Rafał Mantiuk. As an ESR in the ITN RealVision Project, his work will involve research into the real-time rendering techniques for realistic reproduction of images and videos on future electronic displays. He will also investigate efficient data representation of content intended for future display technologies.
