Open Position at Aalto University in the Bio-based Porous Acoustic Materials

Measurement, characterization and modeling of acoustic materials

We are looking for a doctoral researcher (PhD candidate) to study porous materials. The main emphasis in the PhD work would be on measurements, characterisation, and modelling of porous materials in close collaboration with the researchers in chemical engineering. Moreover, the aim is to go beyond the traditional impedance tube and reverberation chamber measurement techniques and develop some novel ways to characterize parameters for modelling of porous acoustic materials. The research will be done in the Virtual Acoustics research team, led by Prof. Tapio Lokki. The team is well known on the work on room acoustics, in particular on studies on concert halls, but our recent interests is to work on bio-fibre based porous acoustic materials. The goal is to develop, together with researchers of functional materials, carbon-negative acoustic materials that could be used in building and room acoustics.
