Sunil Bharitkar received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2004 and is involved in research in speech/audio analysis and processing including spatial audio for AR/VR, biometric & biomedical signal processing, multimodal signal processing, and machine learning. From 2011-2016 he was at Dolby leading/guiding research in audio, signal processing, haptics, machine learning, hearing augmentation, and standardization activities at ITU, SMPTE, AES. He co-founded the company Audyssey Laboratories in 2002 where he was VP of Research and responsible for inventing new technologies which were licensed to companies including IMAX, Denon, Audi, Sharp, etc. He also taught in the Department of Electrical Engineering at USC. Sunil has published over 50 technical papers and has over 20 patents in the area of signal processing applied to acoustics, neural networks and pattern recognition, and a textbook (Immersive Audio Signal Processing) from Springer-Verlag. He is a reviewer for papers at various conferences and journals. He has also been on the Organizing and Technical Program Committees of various conferences such as the 2008 and 2009 European Sig. Proc. Conference (EUSIPCO), the 57th AES Conference, SMPTE Conferences. He has also served as an invited tutorial speaker at the 2006 IEEE Conf. on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP). He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, the Acoustical Soc. of America (ASA), European Association for Signal and Image Processing (EURASIP), and the Audio Eng. Soc. (AES).
