PhD Project

Investigating and measuring acoustic listening expertise

This research aims at understanding and measuring perceptual and cognitive abilities that constitute listener expertise in acoustics. The effects of expert knowledge, experience and other potential predictors on this expertise are investigated to obtain reliable and efficient methods for listener classification in assessment situations such as listening tests.
