Background and activities
Peter Svensson has been professor at the department of electronics and telecommunications since 1999, in the acoustics group. His research interests are room acoustics and electroacoustics, in particular computational methods and measurement techniques, but also auralization techniques (virtual acoustics), and psychoacoustics - the perception of speech and music in rooms.
Peter Svensson has an MSc in eng. phys. (1988) and a PhD in acoustics (1994) from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. He has had research visits at Kobe University (1997-98), Rensselaer Polytech Institute (2007), University of Reading (2012-13), and University College London (2017). Previously he has been vice president of the European Acoustics Association (2007-13), president of the Norwegian Acoustical Society (2004-06), and board member of the Swedish Acoustical Society (1996-99).
