Personal profile

Research profile

General Dik J. Hermes is an assistant professor in the group of Human-Technology Interaction, and his current main scientific interests are concerned with sound perception, sound design, non-speech audio, and the integration of sound and image in user interfaces. At the moment I focus on the perception and synthesis of impact and contact sounds produced during events such as collisions, rolling, scraping, or bouncing. My PhD research was carried out at the Catholic University of Nijmegen and dealt with information processing in the central nervous system of vertebrates. Between 1985 and 2001 I worked at the IPO/Institute for Perception Research, where I worked on speech processing and speech perception, in particular on intonation, speech rhythm, and pitch perception. For a more complete image of my scientific interests I refer to my list of publications at my Personal Page. Teaching I am involved in the bachelor programme -sorry the link is in Dutch- Technological Innovation Sciences and the master programme Human Technology Interaction.
