Personal profile


Jörg Buchholz is a Senior Lecturer at the Audiology and Hearing Research group, Department of Linguistics, Macquarie University, as well as an Auditory Scientist at the National Acoustic Laboratories, Australian Hearing. 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, includingan 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.
