Academic Background

Florian Pausch completed the inter-university degree programme in Electrical Engineering-Audio Engineering at Graz University of Technology and the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. As part of his diploma thesis entitled "A Rigid Double Cone Microphone Array Prototype", supervised by Hannes Pomberger and Franz Zotter, he developed a 64-channel microphone array for sound field analysis in a recording area restricted in the zenith angle by a rigid double cone.

During his doctoral studies, Florian Pausch conducted interdisciplinary research in the fields of Acoustic Virtual Reality and Medical Acoustics at the Institute for Hearing Technology and Acoustics at RWTH Aachen University. His dissertation "Spatial audio reproduction for hearing aid research: System design, evaluation and application", supervised by Janina Fels, deals with implementations of spatial audio reproduction systems for virtual acoustic environments that can be used for the evaluation of hearing aid algorithms and as a test and training environment for hearing aid users.

Current Research

Florian Pausch is part of the project SONICOM and works on parametric modeling of the pinna, and personalised headphone reproduction using machine learning algorithms.
