Dr James Woodcock

profile_photoJames is a post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Salford, where he specialises in the perception of sound and vibration. James is currently working on the EPSRC funded S3A project in collaboration with BBC R&D and Surrey and Southampton Universities, which aims to bring practicable immersive 3D audio into home environments. James’ main role in this project is to investigate how people perceive and process complex auditory scenes, and to develop and implement methods to measure the listener experience of spatial audio.

James’ other main research interests lie in understanding the perception of environmental vibration and noise from railways, which was the topic of his PhD thesis and subsequent work on the EU FP7 project Cargovibes.
