Marton Marschall, a Hungarian student with a diploma in electrical engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, has won this year’s AES Student Technical Paper Award for his paper “Robustness Of A Mixed-Order Ambisonics Microphone Array For Sound Field Reproduction”. The paper is co-authored with Sylvain Favrot and JÜrg Buchholz. The Award was presented on Thursday, April 26, at the 132nd. European AES convention, held, coincidentally, in his home city.
Marton, also has an MSc in engineering acoustics from the Technical University of Denmark is currently a PhD student at the university’s Centre for Applied Hearing Research. As part of his PhD project, he is working on recreating realistic acoustic scenes for hearing research and for the evaluation of communication devices, such as hearing instruments and mobile phones.
His research interests include virtual acoustics, spatial hearing and models of auditory signal processing and perception. The Award also makes Mr. Marschall’s manuscript eligible for publication consideration in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society.
