Aili Niimura
Technical Audio Designer Microsoft

I'm a spatial audio designer and engineer dedicated to pushing the boundaries of spatial audio and AR/VR. Currently driving Metaverse voice experiences at Microsoft Mesh, and was previously at Bang & Olufsen, where I worked on spatial audio electronics. My focus revolves around end-to-end spatial design, aiming to bridge the gap between art and technology in these areas: Voices in the Metaverse, Spatial Audio Prototyping, Immersive Sound Design, Tuning Spatial Audio Algorithms, Audio Tooling for creators, Spatial Audio to enhance human interactions, Strategic Planning for Feature Roadmaps. Beyond the tech world, you might catch me performing with the Seattle Symphony Chorale, jamming at jazz nights, or delving into a book.
