Bernstein Professor, Audio Information Processing at Technical University of Munich
Bernhard U. Seeber holds the Bernstein Professorship for Audio Information Processing at Technical University Munich (TUM). His research in psychoacoustics and audiological acoustics aims at understanding the mechanisms of how we can hear out one sound source in a potpourri of sources, why this fails with hearing impairment, and how hearing aids and cochlear implants can restore auditory function. He introduced virtual acoustics to study these aspects in simulated realistic acoustic scenes. He is member of the executive board of the German Acoustical Society (DEGA), speaker of the Hearing Acoustics Group of the ITG in the VDE and Honorary Associate Professor in the School of Medicine at University of Nottingham. Prior to joining TUM, Dr. Seeber worked at the MRC Institute of Hearing Research in Nottingham, UK, and at UC Berkeley.
