Mr. Alexander Dickschen

Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP

Professional/research interests:
My research deals with acoustical concepts in architecture. Our research group aims to predict the impact of noise on human cognition and wellbeing in noisy environments such as open-plan offices or canteens. I work with numerical models, room simulation and measurements, run surveys and conduct user workshops. The idea is a fast transfer and application of scientific knowledge in the projects we accompany.

What would you like UKAN to do for you?
UKAN could be a great place to exchange ideas and find people with mutural interests, be it acoustics, IT-tools, people skills or networking for projects.

How would you like to contribute to UKAN?
I am very happy to present my research, the methods and outcomes.
