13. November: We welcome a recently hired engineer to our R&D Department and hereby introduce Jorge as part of our team:
My name is Jorge Lopez and I am very glad to be part of the SEAS family. I am a telecommunication engineer specialized in sound and image from the University of Alicante in Spain. Although I attended several subjects related to acoustic sciences during my bachelor studies, it was thanks to my thesis on Distributed Mode Loudspeakers that I became fascinated by the engineering behind sound reproduction. Taking advantage of the academic momentum back then I presented a poster at the 2010 AES convention in London and later that year I enrolled into a master’s program in telecommunication and industrial research. As part of my master studies I carried out my master thesis at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) where I researched the suitability of different psychoacoustic bass algorithms for low-frequency enhancement in small loudspeakers. Once I completed my studies I moved to Asia where I worked as a transducer engineer in one of the leading companies in the audio industry worldwide.
I am very excited about this new career path that opens ahead here at SEAS. I am looking forward to sharing and making use of my engineering capabilities and expertise with the team while I learn from their passion for providing superb sound reproduction systems.
In my leisure time I enjoy outdoors activities such as hiking, scouting or skiing, as well as other sports and of course discovering new places and cultures to learn from.
