I am currently a lecturer and a researcher on acoustics within the GTM (Grup de recerca en Tecnologies Mèdia), at the Department of Engineering of La Salle, Universitat Ramon Llull.
I was born in Barcelona, Catalonia.
My main research interests include the numerical generation of voice with a particular interest in the vocal tract acoustic modelling using Finite Element Methods, the acoustics of ducts and mufflers, and the design and experimental testing of parametric arrays to generate audible sound from ultrasonic modulated beams.
Some research interests are the following:
- Vocal tract acoustics
- Voice production
- Articulatory speech synthesis
- Computational acoustics and aeroacustics
- Duct acoustics
- Acoustic black holes
- Parametric acoustic arrays
- Ultrasound transducers
