Personal profile


Jörg Buchholz is an Associate Professor at the Audiology and Hearing Research group, Department of Linguistics, Macquarie University. He received an MSc and PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, and throughout his academic career he has held different University positions, including an Associate Professor position at the Centre for Applied Hearing Research, Technical University of Denmark, and a postdoctoral research position at the MARCS Auditory Laboratories, Western Sydney University.

Jörg Buchholz is driving research into the understanding and assessment of the normal, impaired, and aided-impaired auditory system in realistic environments. He has developed different sound reproduction methods that allow the recreation of authentic acoustic scenes inside the laboratory, and has developed tests that better assess real-world listening. In addition, he has lead research in psychoacoustics and computational auditory modeling, emphasizing on the monaural and binaural processing of realistic/reverberant sounds. He has also been involved in room acoustic research and applications, including the development of an anechoic chamber, acoustic resonators, playback rooms and microphone-array based analysis of reverberant spaces. 

Research student supervision

I am open to supervising and co-supervising HDR students in my area of research, including spatial hearing, speech perception and communication, hearing devices, hearing loss, 3D sound reproduction, audio-visual virtual environments, room reverberation perception, classroom acoustics, and more.

Titles of previously supervised and completed PhD projects:

  • Applying virtual sound environments to measure and improve the performance of cochlear implants in the real world
  • Hearing aids and music
  • Assessing communication for hearing rehabilitation
  • Complex Acoustic Environments: Concepts, Methods, and Auditory Perception
  • Spatial release from masking in hearing-impaired listeners
  • An investigation into how the acoustics of open plan and enclosed classrooms affects speech perception for kindergarten children
  • Assessing spatial hearing with laboratory-based real-world environments
  • Understanding speech in complex acoustic environments: the role of informational masking and auditory distance perception
  • Virtual acoustic environments for the evaluation of hearing aids
  • Distance perception in impaired and aided-impaired hearing
  • Characterizing human auditory processing in reverberant environments with multiple sound sources
  • Processing of spatial sounds in the impaired auditory system
  • A loudspeaker-based room auralization system for auditory research
