Biography

Armin Kohlrausch (Bremen, 1953) studied physics at the University of Göttingen (Germany) and specialized in acoustics. He received his master degree in 1980 and his Ph. D. in 1984, both on perceptual aspects of sound. From 1985 until 1990 he worked at the Drittes Physikalisches Institut at the University of Göttingen, being responsible for research and teaching in the fields psychoacoustics and room acoustics. In 1991 he joined the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven and worked in the speech and hearing group of the Institute for Perception Research (IPO), a joint venture between Philips and the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Since 1998, he combined his work at Philips Research with a Professor position for auditory and multisensory perception at the TU/e, currently for 0.4 FTE. In 2004 he was appointed research fellow of Philips Research. In 2016 he retired from Philips.

He is a member of a great number of scientific societies, both in Europe and the US. Since 1998 he is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and has served as Associate Editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, for the Journal of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology and currently for Acta Acustica united with Acustica. His main scientific interest is the experimental study and modeling of auditory and multisensory perception in humans and the transfer of this knowledge to industrial applications.

In 2017 he was honored with the Helmholtz medal of the German Acoustical Society for his exceptional contributions to binaural psychoacoustics, auditory modeling, and multisensory perception.
