Seminar: Diverse human responses to sounds from neighbours in wood residential buildings

Wed 2nd November 12:30 – 13:30. This seminar will be held on Teams Alessia Frescura Abstract Sound from neighbours is a key locus of contestation in densifying cities where the construction of high-rise lightweight buildings is promoted as more sustainable for the environment. Neighbours’ sounds invade private spaces, impairing their restorative potential and, sometimes,

Seminar: Fully automated Eco-Acoustic monitoring – from the Tropics to the Nordics

Weds. October 26, 12:30 – 13:30. This seminar will be held on Teams Dr. Sarab S. Sethi Abstract Anthropogenic pressures are causing ecosystems around the world to change at an increasing rate. Accurate and high-level monitoring of these changes is necessary, yet traditional survey techniques are often taxonomically focused, laborious, or scale poorly. In

Seminar: Aerial robotics for facilitation of acoustic sensing in complex environments

Wed 28th September 12:30 – 13:30. This seminar will be held on Teams and shown in Chapman Upper-Open Study Space 1.13, first floor, Chapman. Dr. Lawson, Jenna Louise Abstract Monitoring and evaluating the response of biodiversity to anthropogenic change and evaluating the effectiveness of current strategies is essential for effective management and improved decision

Seminar: Acousto-optic sensing of acoustic fields

Wed 16th March 13:00 – 14:00. This seminar will be held on Teams and shown in in Newton G14. Abstract The characterization of sound fields over space is fundamental in acoustics. Yet, the acquisition of sound fields using conventional electromechanical transducers is challenging due to the high sampling requirements. In this study, we introduce an

Seminar: Modelling the Perception of Percussive Low Frequency Instruments in Rooms

Wed 9th March 13:00 – 14:00 This seminar will be streamed via Teams – click here to join. Abstract The effects of room modes on audio reproduction are well reported and researched, however a considerable amount of work typically focuses on smaller acoustic environments, such as listening rooms and control rooms. Larger listening spaces, such
