TREVOR COX: Professor of Acoustic Engineering

"Trevor Cox carries out research, teaching and commercial activities in acoustic engineering. He is an EPSRC Senior Media Fellow and President of the Institute of Acoustics (Presidential Twitter Account)
Prof Cox carries out research in performance room acoustics, investigating how room conditions can be improved for good speech communication, and quality music production and reproduction. He has or is principal investigator on five EPSRC projects concerned with room acoustics.

The results from GR/L13124 fed directly into Audio Engineering Society standard information document AES-4id-2001, the first standard on the measurement of surface diffusion. GR/L34396 developed an understanding of a new sound absorbing mechanism. GR/N39685 concerned room acoustic active diffusers. A current EPSRC project is examining the acoustics of secondary schools.
