Sundeep (Sunny) Jolly is currently a research assistant and Ph.D. student with the Object-Based Media Group at the MIT Media Lab where he is working on the development of novel optical architectures and computational view-rendering methods for future autostereoscopic, electro-holographic three-dimensional motion displays. Before coming to MIT, he was a member of the technical professional staff at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory where he aided research and development efforts for future radar systems. Prior to that, he attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where he received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, a B.S. degree in Physics, and an M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Additionally, he aided research efforts in the development of novel volume holographic spectrometers for future biosensing applications with the Photonics Research Group and in the optical design and optimization of micro-opto-acoustic transducers for future hearing aid applications with the Micromachined Sensors and Transducers Laboratory.
Sundeep is an active member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the Optical Society of America, the American Physical Society, the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), and the Association for Computing Machinery. In his spare time, he enjoys freelance photography and participates in a variety of science outreach programs.
