Jens Ahrens

Docent at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Applied Acoustics

Jens Ahrens is Associate Professor in the Division of Applied Acoustics and leader of the Audio Technology research group. His main research interests revolve around the domain of spatial sound. In particular, he works on technical aspects of spatial sound capture and auralization using loudspeaker and microphone arrays as well as on the psychoacoustics that come with it. Plausible or even authentic auralization of sound scenes is an important tool for investigating the effects of sound on human beings covering all the range from urban noise to music performance.
