Aryaman Gupta is a PhD student at the MOSAIC group since August 2018. He is an Indian citizen, born in New Delhi, India, in October 1994.
From 2013 to 2018, Aryaman studied a combined Bachelor/Master degree in Computer Science and Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela (India). In June 2018, he graduated with honours.
During his studies, Aryaman was part of a research team developing Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and worked on a game-engine-based simulator for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The team represented the institute at national and international events with success, winning the second prize at the prestigious Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (SAUVC) 2018, organised by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society Singapore, and the third prize at the Indian National Competition on Students’ Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (SAVe) 2017, organised by the National Institute of Ocean Technology, Chennai. He also completed summer internships at the MOSAIC group and at Stitchwood, a startup based in Mumbai selling customized furniture, working on projects in the fields of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. His Master thesis, titled ‘Human Action Recognition with LSTM on Skeletal Quadruples’, was performed under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Bidyut Kumar Patra.
In the MOSAIC group, Aryaman will bring in his experience in visual computing and work on immersive in-situ visualizations for the simulations framework OpenFPM. More specifically, he will work on linking OpenFPM with the graphics rendering library Scenery, leading to an integrated visualisation environment for simulations and microscopy data, enabling user-driven steering of the simulations.
