Welcome! I am a lecturer (docent) at the Acoustics group of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University in Belgium, and an adjunct lecturer at the Griffith School of Environment of Griffith University, Brisbane. My work is partly supported by a postdoctoral fellowship of the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen).
At this site you will find some information about my professional life as a researcher in acoustics. My research interests are very broad, including audio signal processing, acoustic design of the urban environment, outdoor soundscapes, modelling of road traffic noise and its impacts on man and society, machine audition and perception of environmental sound, computational auditory scene analysis and computational intelligence and AI in general.
I obtained my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Physics at Ghent University resp. in 2002 and 2007. In 2004, I was a visiting researcher at the Gösta Ekman Laboratory for Sensory Research of Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. From October 2008 until September 2009, I was a postdoc at the BISC group of the Computer Science Division of the University of California at Berkeley, as a honorary fellow of the Belgian American Educational Foundation. In August 2010 and September 2011, I was a visiting scholar at the Griffith School of Environment, Brisbane.
