Annika Neidhardt

Annika is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Sound Recording within the frame of the SCReAM project. She received her M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering/automation from Technische Universität Chemnitz, Germany in 2007, and her M.Sc. degree in audio engineering from the University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz, Austria, together with the University of Technology Graz, Austria in 2015. She obtained her Ph.D. degree at Technical University Ilmenau, Ilmenau, 98684, Germany. Her Ph.D. topic was the perception of room acoustics in six-degrees-of-freedom listening scenarios with the target application in virtual reality and augmented reality audio. In addition, she teaches psychoacoustics and audio engineering with a special focus on binaural technology. She received the Best Student Paper Award at the Audio Engineering Society Convention 2020.
