Currently Active: 
Yes

The Signal Processing, Audio and Hearing Group (SPAH) is part of the world leading Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR). SPAH was founded to bring together researchers working on the processing, perception and control of complex signals, with a primary focus on technological innovations related to both the engineering and human sciences aspects of acoustics.

SPAH incorporates a number of Labs and Centres, which include the Centre for Research in Active Control, the Hearing and Balance Centre and the Virtual Acoustics and Audio Engineering Lab.

Key areas of research within the group include the Active Control of Sound and Vibration; Spatial and 3D Audio reproduction and capture; Audiology, Hearing Impairment, Psychoacoustics and Communication; Signal Processing for Underwater Acoustics and Bioacoustics; but also extends beyond acoustics to the fields of Image Processing, Biomedical Signal Processing and Human Balance.
