Tell us about yourself
I’m from Kolkata, India, and came to Edinburgh in 2011 to pursue a Master’s degree in Acoustics and Music Technology. Previously, I was working in a Fortune 500 company back in India as a programmer for a couple of years, after which I decided to take a break and continue my studies.
I did my undergraduate course in Electronics and Communication Engineering in India, so my MSc was my first ever stint studying or working abroad. I have been a proud resident of Edinburgh ever since.

I’m co-founder, and CEO, of Two Big Ears Ltd. We make audio technology which is both efficient and designer-friendly.
3Dception, which is our 3D audio spatialisation tool for games and Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality application developers, has gained prominence with the rise of Virtual Reality over the past year and is being used in some of the top content made by indie developers, as well as industry leaders.
This is an extremely new yet exciting and challenging market with people all over the world creating mind-boggling technology and content, and to interact and work with these people is a massive source of inspiration. The biggest challenge is to try and understand how a solution meets the market needs and to deliver it. To wake up every day to solve people’s problems in an effective and creative way and to be recognised for it, is what keeps us going.
