Personal Data

Professorship Signal Theory and Digital Signal Processing


Sascha Spors is a Professor and heads the group for Signal Theory and Digital Signal Processing at the Institute of Communications Engineering, Universität Rostock. From 2005 to 2012, he was heading the audio technology group at the Quality and Usability Lab, Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, Technische Universität Berlin, as a senior research scientist. From the Electrical, Electronic and Communication Engineering Faculty of the University Erlangen-Nuremberg, he obtained his Doctoral Degree (Dr.-Ing.) with distinction in January 2006, as a result of his work as a research scientist at the Chair of Multimedia Communications and Signal Processing. The topic of his doctoral thesis was the active compensation of the listening room characteristics for sound reproduction systems. During his thesis work from 2001 to 2006, he conducted research on wavefield analysis, wavefield synthesis and massive multichannel adaptation problems. Sascha Spors is member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Akustik (DEGA)" and the Audio Engineering Society (AES). In 2011 he has recieved the Lothar-Cremer-Preis of the DEGA. He is member of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee and chair of the AES Technical Committee on Spatial Audio.
