MSc student Graeme Littleford of the class 2017-18, has been awarded the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) Robert Bradford student medal. The Robert Bradford Newman Student Medal for Merit in Architectural Acoustics recognizes excellence in the study of acoustics and its application to architecture. The program honours outstanding students at schools of architecture and architectural engineering throughout the world. The judging panel based their decision on Graeme’s MSc Final project dissertation supervised by Dr Luis Gomez-Agustina. Grame’s final project, undertook work on determining the effects of passengers on the performance of Voice Alarm systems on underground platforms. An international conference paper on the work will be presented at Internoise 2019 (Madrid 16-19 June 2019) by Graeme and Luis. Congratulations Graeme.

Visiting professor Dr Peter Mapp, was invited to give this year’s Warren-Barnet memorial lecture at the Institute of Sound & Communications annual seminar and exhibition. Peter spoke about The use of Psychoacoustics in the PA and sound system design to a packed audience of over 75 delegates. This was the 5th time that Peter has been invited to give the annual lecture in its 34 year history. The lecture discussed the acoustic properties of the ear, sound localization, loudness and frequency response assessment as well as spatial hearing and the effects of echoes, reflections and the inherent latency in digital systems and the effect this can have on intelligibility and visual synchronization and the associated consequences for the hard of hearing.
