Immersive Audio Laboratory

I collaborated with Paul Chyz and Prof. Chris Kyriakakis on a project in the Immersive Audio Laboratory exploring the effects of sound parameters on localization ability. Based on patterns we noticed in an earlier study, there were certain qualities of sound that we hypothesized would be strong predictors of confusion for localizing 3D sound. To test these hypotheses I designed and built a pivoting speaker rig, conducted over 50 individual data collections, and wrote this pre-print journal article on the topic.
