Dr Christian Richardt has received EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship
CAMERA is delighted to announce that Dr Christian Richardt has not only received a EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship, but he was ranked top by the EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship interview panel.
EPSRC-UKRI Innovation Fellowships aim to support engineering and physical sciences research aligned to the Industrial Strategy challenges. They nurture future leaders to promote greater mobility between industry and their own research base, and to ensure that UK industrial sectors have a supply of skilled researchers.
Dr Christian Richardt will work on creating a new form of immersive 360-degree VR video which will allow people to experience places, for example the International Space Station, without leaving the comfort of their own home. The new technology will overcome the limitations of existing 360-degree VR video, achieving unparalleled realism and immersion by providing freedom of head motion and motion parallax.
Christian will work with a number of project partners including Foundry (London) and REWIND (St Albans). He said: “I am delighted to have been awarded this Fellowship, as it allows me to completely focus on working towards my research vision and developing my team here at Bath.”
