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…

PhD defence in Murcia

At 27 September, Juan Emilio Noriega Linares from the university of Murcia (UCAM) defended his PhD thesis 'Analysis of the sound field and the annoyance of noise pollution in cities with the use of sensor networks'. I witnessed his defence as member of the doctorate committee. Congrats Juan Emilio!

Two new Journal papers

Two journal papers from our group have recently been accepted or publication. One paper is part of the stage acoustics PhD project of Remy Wenmaekers, titled 'Sensitivity of stage acoustic parameters to source and receiver directivity: Measurements on three stages and in two orchestra pits', published Applied Acoustics. The other paper is on the role of…
