I received my Ph.D. degree in signal processing from Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark in 2000. From 2000 to 2007 I was working as a Post-Doc. and Assistant Professor with Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. In 2007, I joined Oticon, a world-leading hearing aid company in Denmark, as a Senior Researcher. In 2013, I joined Aalborg University as a Professor in acoustic signal processing.

Since 2000 I have had the opportunity to see research cooperations between industry and academia from both sides of the table. Although there are definitely pitfalls to avoid, there are, in my opinion, much to be gained from such cooperations. Having a foot in both the academic and the industrial camp today, I believe it is possible for research cooperations to harvest the best of two worlds.

Research Interests

In broad terms, I am interested in signal processing concepts which complement or compensate the human perception system. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the mechanisms behind and the limit of human auditory perception in noisy environments, and in building systems and algorithms for processing of noisy signals, which approach or surpass the performance of the human.

My main research interests include
  • signal retrieval from noisy observations, including
    • signal enhancement,
    • signal dereverberation,
    • feedback and echo cancellation,
    • etc.
  • coding,
  • speech and audio modification and synthesis,
  • signal processing for machine receivers, e.g. automatic speech recognition systems,
  • intelligibility enhancement of speech signals,
  • intelligibility prediction of noisy/processed speech signals,
  • signal processing for hearing aid applications,
  • perceptual aspects of signal processing in general, and human signal processing.
