Dr Jordan Cheer is a New Frontiers Fellow within the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, which is part of the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.

Current position

Jordan is a New Frontiers Fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research. His work covers both active control of noise and vibration and sound field control for audio reproduction. He is also currently assistant editor for the Journal of Sound and Vibration.

Career history

Jordan graduated from the University of Surrey in 2008 with a BMus (Tonmeister) in Music and Sound Recording. In 2009 he received the MSc in Sound and Vibration from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) at the University of Southampton, with a thesis on the design of directional loudspeakers for mobile devices. Following this he carried out his doctoral research in the Signal Processing and Control group of the ISVR on the subject of active control of the acoustic environment in automobile cabins. This was funded by the Green City Car Project which was part of the European Commission 7th Framework Programme. Having received the PhD in 2012, he was then appointed as a Research Fellow in Active Control at the ISVR. He was promoted to Senior Research Fellow at the beginning of 2015 and later in 2015 was appointed as a New Frontiers Fellow.

Research interests

Dr Cheer’s research interests focus on the active control of both sound and vibration. This encompasses both the reduction of unwanted noise and vibration and the enhancement or manipulation of wanted sounds. Within these research areas he is specifically interested in:

  • Industrial applications of active noise and vibration control.
  • Algorithm development for active noise and vibration control.
  • Loudspeaker array design and signal processing for the generation of spatial sound zones.
  • Subjective optimisation of acoustic systems.

Active Control of Road Noise in a Car

The use of active noise control in cars may allow manufacturers to remove traditional passive acoustic treatments and thus reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency.

Active Control of Sound and Vibration on a Luxury Yacht

Traditional passive noise and vibration techniques can be complemented by active control systems and improve the acoustic environment in luxury yachts.

Directive Warning Sounds for Electric Vehicles

The generation of independent listening zones in a car cabin would allow each occupant to listen to a different audio programme without the constraints of headphones.

Generating a Personal Listening Zone from a Mobile Device

Mobile audio devices are widely used in public spaces and reducing the noise nuisance that the pose can be achieved using loudspeaker arrays.

Generation of Multiple Independent Listening Zones in a Vehicle Cabin

The generation of independent listening zones in a car cabin would allow each occupant to listen to a different audio programme without the constraints of headphones.
