Professor Filippo Maria Fazi is an internationally recognised expert in the fields of 3D audio, sound field control, and acoustical inverse problems.

"My research in audio technologies lies at the intersection of physical acoustics, signal processing, and psychoacoustics. Together with my team, I apply rigorous science to the development and design of innovative and practical engineering solutions."

Filippo Maria Fazi is Professor of Acoustics and Signal Processing at Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) of the University of Southampton, where he leads the Virtual Acoustics and Audio Engineering Team. He also serves as Director of Research of the Institute.

His research interests include acoustics, audio technologies, electroacoustics and digital signal processing, with special focus on acoustical inverse problems, multi-channel systems (including Ambisonics and Wave Field Synthesis), cross-talk cancellation systems, virtual acoustics, and microphone arrays.

He is also co-founder and chief scientist of Audioscenic, a young and dynamic start-up company that commercialises the listener-adaptive loudspeaker array technologies developed by Prof Fazi and his team.

Professor Fazi is a recipient of the Tyndall Medal (awarded by the Institute of Acoustics in 2018), a fellow of the Audio Engineering Society, and a member of the Institute of Acoustics.
