A great support is provided by our supervisors:
Chalmers University of Technology
Professor at the Division at Applied Acoustics, and Deputy Head of Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He is also the head of the vibroacoustic research group and is supervisor/mentor for research in the areas of tyre/road interaction, wheel/rail interaction, urban sound planning and building acoustics. His favourite interest areas are structure-borne sound and time domain formulations in acoustics. He is also the Director of the Master’s Programme in Sound and Vibration (MPSOV).
Chalmers University of Technology
Jens is an Associate Professor at the Division of Applied Acoustics, research group Vibroacoustics, at Chalmers. His area of research is outdoor sound propagation, dealing mainly with physical modelling and numerical methods, but measurements is also an integral part.
Among the research topics are: general outdoor acoustics, i.e. effects of meteorology, terrain and ground conditions, sound propagation in urban environments, sound propagation to inner yards, road and rail traffic noise, wind turbine noise, noise barriers, performance of noise barriers in conditions of atmospheric turbulence, statistical parameters of urban acoustics and auralization of road vehicles and urban acoustics
Maarten is an assistant professor in the Building Acoustics Group of Unit Building Physics and Services (BPS). Maarten’s research area is modeling sound propagation in urban areas and through inhomogeneous media and his research interests are: Wave-based modeling approaches; Development of efficient numerical methodologies for sound propagation; Sound propagation in urban areas, especially to areas shielded from direct noise exposure; Modeling sound propagation in (semi)-enclosed spaces; Influence of vegetation on sound propagation through urban areas; Influence of meteorological effects on sound propagation; Influence of jet flows on sound propagation and radiation; Auralization from wave-based methods and hybrid wave-based/geometrical acoustics techniques; Auralization for human echolocation.
Second University of Naples
Full professor of Technical Physics (Applied Acoustics, Lighting, Building Environmental Control) at the Second University of Naples, Department of Architecture and Industrial Design since year 2000. Currently, he is Vice President of the I-INCE International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (2010-2012). He is Alderman for Transport & Mobility of the Province of Caserta (Italy) and coordinates the CIVITAS Catalist EU Project on sustainable mobility. He cooperates with Ansaldo SpA in the design and application of low-impact transportation systems (tramways, metro).
University of Sheffield
Has been Professor of Acoustics at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture since 2003. His research field is architectural/environmental acoustics and noise control. His specialist areas include computer simulation of room acoustics and environmental acoustics, auralisation, urban soundscape and acoustic comfort, social and psychological aspects of sounds, acoustic environments for hearing impaired individuals, speech intelligibility, acoustic physical scale modelling, acoustics of long spaces (such as underground stations and urban streets), sound absorption (especially with non-fibrous materials), sound insulation (especially at low frequencies), acoustic properties of vegetation and green roofs, acoustic windows for natural ventilation, auditorium and recording studio design, industrial and environmental noise prediction and control, and large scale noise mapping.
Research professor at Ghent University. He teaches courses on Acoustics, Noise pollution, and computational methods. Current research interests include environmental noise, numerical modelling, and applied acoustics. Research on environmental noise includes outdoor sound propagation in urban and rural area, noise mapping, and modelling noise effects including soundscape and quiet areas. Numerical modelling research has mainly focused on time domain methods and their use in outdoor atmosphere.
Part-time professor at Ghent University and post-doctoral researcher at IBBT (Interdisciplinair Instituut voor Breedband Technologie). He teaches courses with relation to environmental noise. Research interests are linked to sound propagation in the outdoor environment, including both (detailled) numerical modelling and noise abatement strategies. Of special interest are the influence of meteorlogical effects on sound propagation and noise barriers, urban sound propagation, and the use of natural means (like trees and green roofs) to solve noise problems.
Müller BBM GmbH
Physics diploma at Stuttgart University. Since 1989 at Müller-BBM GmbH as a consultant for sound and vibration with the main focus on traffic noise reduction.
Activities: Consultancy on traffic noise abatement, measurements of acoustically relevant road parameters.
Since 2001 collaboration in several national and international research projects on noise reduction (e.g. Quiet Road Traffic (Germany), ITARI (EU 6th framework), SONORUS and HOSANNA (EU 7th framework)) as well as in several national projects dealing with low noise concrete roads, partly as project leader.

ISPRA, Italian National Institute for Environmental Protection and Research
EMPA, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology
Senior Scientist at EMPA and lecturer in Acoustics at the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at ETH Zurich.
SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden
Senior Researcher at SP at the acoustic laboratory and works also at Chalmers University of Technology. Krister research interest is quite broad and I have been involved in some varying research projects. I mainly focus on physical modelling of the tyre/road interaction and thermoacoustics. Further I am interested in such various topics as machinery acoustics, building acoustics, measurement techniques and numerical acoustics.
