Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Alan Kan received his PhD in engineering from the University of Sydney in 2010. During his PhD, he worked as a consultant for two startups developing technologies for personalizing audio VR and biomedical signal processing. After graduation, he moved to the United States to work as a Post-doc, and later as an Assistant Scientist, at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison. He held an appointment as Lecturer in the Department of Communcation Sciences and Disorders at UW-Madison in 2013-2014. In 2019, he returned to Australia and joined the School of Engineering at Macquarie University. 

Research interests

Alan's research interests are in the areas of signal processing, psychoacoustics, spatial hearing, auditory neuroscience and computational modeling. He is most well known for his work with cochlear implants and audio virtual reality.

Research engagement

Beyond his position at the university, Alan serves as a member of the Acoustical Society of America – Psychological and Physiological Acoustics Technical Committee, and as an Editorial Board Member for the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research. He is also a regular reviewer for journals and conferences in signal processing, audio engineering, acoustics and hearing research.
