Project description

This postdoctoral project encompasses research into the mechanisms underlying the way in which people perceive their everyday sonic environment, and how this shapes their long-term quality of life perception. The knowledge on psychoacoustics and auditory perception will be made explicit in a simulation model, aimed at an integration in ambient intelligent systems.
