PhD Defence and symposium

At June 25th, Fotis Georgiou will publicly defend his PhD thesis Modeling for auralization of urban environments: incorporation of directivity in sound propagation and analysis of a framework for auralizing a car pass-by (PDF). The defence is preceded by a symposium with presentations from Dr. Jens Ahrens, Dr. Tapio Lokki and two PhD students from Dutch…

Research sabbatical!

An exciting 5-month period has started from the first of May, as I will spend this time on a research sabbatical at Aalto University and Stockholm University. I will work on (part) of a virtual acoustic technology that enable the blind to train human echolocation. It will be inspiring to work in different research environments…

New research collaboration with Oculus!

In January 2018, our Building Acoustics group has started a research collaboration with Oculus, well known for its virtual reality headsets. With this new research project, we aim to answer the question: How close get we get to reality with auralization from a wave-based methodology? We will carry out this research for a small living room sized space and the research will…
