Dies Elegantiarum 2023

Wonderful departmental photo at Dies Elegantiarum 2023. Dies Elegantiarum is a long-term tradition in Design Engineering (we had the first one in 2016, and we didn’t miss a year since); it consists in coming to work that day dressed up using your best and smartest attire. Thanks once again to Lorenzo for bring this tradition […]

Early Career SIG Event

Meeting so many great Acoustics researchers at the UK Early career event in Manchester this week was fantastic. Feeling inspired.

AXD meets SAP

It was cool to meet the Speech and Audio Processing Lab from EEE today to present some of the projects we work on and to be able to share knowledge between the teams. It is always good to hear about our common research field from a different perspective!
