John Mourjopoulos is a Professor of Electroacoustics and Digital Audio Technology at the Electrical and Computing Engineering Department of the University of Patras, in Greece. He obtained a BSc degree in engineering from Coventry University and MSc and PhD degrees in 1980 and 1985, from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), at Southampton University. His PhD research was in the area of digital signal processing and room acoustics and has also worked at ISVR as a researcher fellow. In 2000, he was a visiting professor at the Institute for Communication Acoustics at Ruhr-University Bochum, in Germany. He has worked in national and European projects, has organised seminars and short courses and contributed towards the development of digital audio devices. John Mourjopoulos has authored and presented more that 100 papers in international Journals and Conferences, many of those in JAES and Audio Engineering Society Conventions where occasionally was Session Chairman. For his work, he was awarded an AES Fellowship in 2006. His research relates mainly to digital processing of audio and acoustic signals, especially for equalisation of room acoustics. He has also worked on perceptually-motivated models for such applications, as well as for speech and audio signal enhancement. His recent research interests also relate to aspects of all-digital audio chain, including WLAN audio, amplification and direct acoustic transduction of digital audio streams. He has also been active as musician and composer, participating in concerts and recordings. He is a member of the AES (being chairman of the Greek section for the period 1993-95 and currently acting as vice-chairman), of the IEEE and of the Hellenic Institute of Acoustics.
