Members of my research team will present progress of recent research at various conferences in June and July. The overview of our papers can be found here.
In the first three months of 2019, four new researchers have started working in our Building Acoustics research group! JinJack Tan is a postdoctoral research fellow, who was awarded a 2-year EuroTech postdoc research grant with his research project MARS: Integration of Musical Acoustics, Room acoustics and Sound perception Jieun Yang is a postdoctoral research … More New group members
A graduate-level training in the fundamental and applied aspects of computational acoustics is held in Le Mans, 10-14 December of this year, don’t miss it! More information can be found here.
My research sabbatical has come to an end. It have been 5 wonderful months, with plenty of time to spend with my family in Helsinki and Stockholm. I am grateful for my hosts Lauri Savioja & Tapio Lokki at Aalto and Mats Nilsson Stockholms University for offering me the opportunity to work in there labs … More End of sabbatical!
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 … More PhD Defence and symposium
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 … More Research sabbatical!
The national public radio was interested in our research collaboration with Oculus and interviewed me at 24 April 2018. The interview (in Dutch) can be found here.
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 … More New research collaboration with Oculus!
In week 3 of 2018, the first Acoutect Summer School was held in Gothenburg on Modern sustainable building concepts. During this meeting, the Early Stage Researchers of Acoutect met the supervisors for the very first time! Experiences of this week will soon be shared, keep an eye on http://www.acoutect.eu.
