“Spatial audio reproduction using analysis-based synthesis techniques”
This project aims to develop a spatial audio recording, coding, reproduction chain based on the analysis of sound scenes from recordings made with special microphone arrays. The project will investigate novel sound source localisation and separation algorithms and direct/diffuse separation from recordings; develop sound scene authoring tools and necessary methods for 3D and spatial sound source generation.
“Sound source localisation using open spherical acoustic intensity probes”
This project aims to design and develop open spherical microphone arrays to accurately measure acoustic intensity and use the acoustic intensity vectors for localising sound sources, even under highly reverberant environments.
METU II, Ankara, Turkey (2011-2012) “Design of a scalable acoustic simulator for computer games and virtual reality applications” This project was funded by the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council (TUBITAK) under the “2322: Returning Researcher Programme”. The aim of the project is to design a computationally efficient and scalable virtual acoustics simulator that can be used in games and virtual reality applications.
Collaborators: Prof. Veysi İşler, Prof. Zoran Cvetkovic, Dr. Enzo De Sena
“Perceptual Sound Field Reconstruction and Coherent Emulation”
The aim of this project was to design a 5-10 channel audio recording/reproduction system which would enable regenerating an auditory experience that is perceptually equivalent to that of the the recorded environment. This project was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of UK.
Collaborators: Prof. Zoran Cvetkovic (PI), Dr. Enzo De Sena (Doctoral student), Prof. Francis Rumsey (Uni. Surrey, now Logophon Ltd.) and Mr. James Johnston
“Networked Audiovisual Media Technologies”
VISNET II was a hugely successful EU FP6 Network of Excellence, which involved many different partners from around Europe. I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in this project. The research I carried out was mainly related to acoustical modelling of rooms/enclosures with time-domain models run on multiple processing cores.
This was a research network funded by EPSRC. The members of the network included prominent UK researchers in the areas of acoustics, soundscape analysis and design, architecture, mathematics, audio processing, social sciences. The aim of the network was to form a panel of experts which would advise the governmental bodies like Greater London Authority (GLA) or UK Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) on issues related to noise. I was one of the founding members of the network.
This was an umbrella project which had different internal collaborators in the University of Surrey. Different departments which contributed to the project were I-Lab, CCSR, CVSSP, and ATI. The overarching aim was to generate a virtual health assitant called nicknamed the “Guardian Angel”. The project involved many stages from motion capture, 3D modelling, virtual environments, 3D video processing, and 3D audio. I was employed as a postdoctoral research fellow in this project and the research I carried out was on the design and testing of new 3D audio algorithms for use in virtual environments.
