Charlie House is a Postgraduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton

I am a postgraduate research student investigating the measurement and control of acoustic scattering, caused by solid objects. This technique, known as Acoustic Cloaking, can make an object ‘acoustically transparent’, so that its presence in a sound-field has no noticeable effects in the far-field.

Before starting this project, I studied at the University of Southampton where I graduated with a 1st class MEng in Acoustical Engineering. Throughout this degree I specialised in computing and soundfield control for audio applications. I completed two research projects, one individual and one in a small group, titled: “Crosstalk Cancellation for Headrest Sound Reproduction” and “Personal Spatial Audio in Cars” respectively. Each of these projects resulted in a conference publication, as detailed below.

To compliment my degree I took part in two separate summer placements with Vanguardia Consulting; working on the acoustic and PA design of arenas and stadiums, as well as working as a noise consultant at major UK festivals. After graduating I have continued to work with them on a freelance basis, whilst continuing with my studies.

In my spare time, I am a keen photographer and graphic designer, as well as playing the drums and working as a producer for the University Musical Theatre Society: Showstoppers.
