Dr. Ian Drumm
School of Science, Engineering and Environment
After graduating from the University of Leeds with a BSc in Physics in 1989, I worked for Kernel Technology as a software engineer and consultant for numerous clients such as Xerox, ICL, Uniplex, Luncheon Vouchers and the M.O.D. In 1999 I completed a PhD in Acoustics at the University of Salford, developing computer models to predict the propagation of sound in architectural spaces. I subsequently worked for the Manchester Visualisation Centre at the University of Manchester. I am currently a Lecturer for the School of Computing, Science and Engineering at the University of Salford.
Areas of research
Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Acoustics, Audio, Public Engagement
I have delivered modules in Audio Technology, Musical Acoustics, Mathematics and Programming (Java, C#, C++, Web Applications/Services, Software Design, etc).
I have been PI, and CI for EPSRC and EU funded projects that include public engagement and developments in future media technologies. I have published journal articles in Beam Tracing for Room Acoustics Prediction, FDTD/FEM techniques and hybridised Wavefield Synthesis/Ambisonics.
