Science - Acoustics and Psychoacoustics

My interest in acoustics and psychoacoustics was raised when I did my diploma thesis at the Institute for Broadcast Engineering (IRT) in Munich. It was about auditory distance perception in the near-field using wave-field-synthesis. I afterwards got the opportunity to study for a PhD in the lab of Prof. H. Fastl. Topic of the PhD thesis has been the perceptibility of vehicle exterior noises in background noises. Those who are interested in some results can have a look into my publications.

I then worked for the MRC Institute of Hearing Research in Nottingham/UK in the group of Bernhard Seeber. Focus of the work was on "Auditory Scene Analysis" and "Binaural hearing" and their application to cochlear implants. We successfully completed a project sponsored by Cochlear Europe Ltd., which looked into the localisation abilities of cochlear implant users in difficult acoustic environments characterised by reverberation and background noise. The results are currently written up/under review and will appear here as soon as they are officially published. If you want more information now please do not hesitate to contact me by email.

In October 2013 I started work at Müller-BBM Active Sound Technolgy, a company specialised in systems for ANC (Active Noise Control) and ASD (Active Sound Design). Please do not hesitate to contact me with any issues related to my previous and present work.
