Professor Steve Elliott is a Professor at the ISVR, in Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.
He graduated with joint honours in physics and electronics from the University of London in 1976 and in 1979 was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Surrey for a thesis on musical acoustics. After his appointment as a lecturer at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) in 1982, he was made senior lecturer in 1988 and Professor of Adaptive Systems in 1994.
He served as Director of the ISVR from 2005 to 2010
My research has been concerned with the connections between the physical world, signal processing and control, mostly in relation the active control of sound and vibration. This work has resulted in the practical demonstration of active control in propeller aircraft, cars and helicopters. My current research interests include personal and zonal audio and modelling the active processes within the cochlear
Professor Elliott has published over 250 papers in refereed journals and 600 conference papers and is co-author of Active Control of Sound (with P A Nelson 1992), Active Control of Vibration (with C R Fuller and P A Nelson 1996) and author of Signal Processing for Active Control (2001).
He was made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2009.
