Doyuen Ko holds M.Mus and Ph.D. from Sound Recording program at McGill University, Canada. He has also been working as a professional recording engineer and a sound designer for various projects in North America and South Korea.
He 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 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.
