Doyuen Ko, PhD
Doyuen Ko holds a Master’s of Music and currently a PhD candidate in the Sound Recording at McGill University, Canada. Prior to studying at McGill, he has worked as a sound designer at Korean Broadcasting System (KBS).
Doyuen is actively involved in research projects, focusing specifically in the areas of virtual acoustics, spatial sound design and interactive networked performance. The outcome of the research is well recognized internationally. Several collaborating projects have been based on research he has been conducting, undertaken by leading audio research groups and companies such as the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University, Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) and Skywalker Sound.
Doyuen also has been teaching a variety of courses in acoustics and audio engineering, particularly technical ear training for sound engineers. Due to the effective curriculum and innovative ear training management system he co-developed, this course has greatly enriched students’ performance in sound engineering. Consequently, 7 major universities in North America have agreed to subscribe the ear training management system in 2013 – 2014 academic year.
He has published and presented his research papers on several international scientific conferences and journals including Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Acoustic Society of America (ASA) and Audio Engineering Society (AES).
