VIPNOM project welcomes Devansh Kandpal

The VIPNOM project welcomes new colleague Devansh Kandpal. On March 1, 2023, Devansh started as Smart Buildings and Cities EngD trainee at project partner Sorama. In his two-year traineeship he will be working collaboratively with the Building Physics group at TU/e on a virtual reality acoustics simulator/configurator.


“I envision this configurator as something we will use here at Sorama to configure our products for different settings, for example smart stadiums, busy streets and probably more.” Devansh’s prior educational experiences include a BSc in Computer Science & Engineering from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, India, and a MSc in Sound and Music Computing from Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark. He has also worked in various IT roles with firms like JPMorgan Chase, Shell and Bosch.

“I’m glad to be a part of this exciting setup here in Eindhoven,

and I look forward to meeting you soon!”
