University of Huddersfield

I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in Music Technology and Director of the Centre for Audio and Psychoacoustic Engineering (CAPE)/Applied Psychoacoustics Lab (APL) at the University of Huddersfield, UK. Past and current research areas include the perception of auditory height and vertical stereophony, development of new 3D/VR/AR microphone array and reproduction techniques, perceptual modelling of room acoustics for 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) VR/AR applications, perceptual optimisation of interactive virtual acoustics, etc. Before joining Huddersfield in 2010, I was Senior Research Engineer at LG Electronics, South Korea (2006-2010), where I contributed to MPEG audio standardisation and developed spatial audio engines for LG mobile phones. I graduated from the Music and Sound Recording (Tonmeister) course at the University of Surrey (1998-2002), and received my PhD in spatial audio psychoacoustics at the same university. I am also a freelance recording engineer specialising in surround/immersive sound recording. I have been an active member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) since 2001, and a Fellow of the AES since 2018. I am Vice Chair for High Resolution Audio Technical Committee of the AES, a Technical Associate Editor for Journal of the AES, and an Editorial Board Member for the AES/Routledge "AES Presents" book series.
