Biography

Professor
B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, Danish Engineering Academy, 1974
Ph.D. in Acoustics, Aalborg University, 1984

Henrik Møller was born 1951 in Århus, Denmark. Having finished his education as an electronics engineer, he followed his interest in acoustics and worked as a development engineer, later project leader, at Brüel & Kjær, Copenhagen. In 1976 he joined Aalborg University, where he has been since. He has held various positions from research assistant through assistant and associate professor to reader (1988-96) and professor (1996-). He served as coordinator of the Acoustics Group, later Acoustics Laboratory, until 1999, and 2000-02 he was head of the new Department of Acoustics. In 1991-94 Henrik Møller was partly on leave from the university to work as a director of Perceptive Acoustics A/S, a subsidiary of Brüel & Kjær. In 2002 he founded, together with AM Production and colleagues, the company AM:3D, which will develop industrial and entertainment applications within binaural technology.

As reader and professor Henrik Møller has been responsible for heading research and teaching in acoustics at Aalborg University and evolving it to its present level. He has obtained a number of research grants, the largest at present being a framework program in Human sound perception and a program in Sound quality (the latter headed by a research professor). From 1997 teaching in acoustics included an M.Sc. specialization for electrical and electronics engineers, which is given in English and which attracts many foreign students.

Henrik Møller's own teaching has ranged from basic electronics and physics through signal processing and areas of biomedical engineering to various fields of acoustics. In recent years his main teaching duties have been connected to supervision of Ph.D. students.

For many years Henrik Møller has been involved in various organizational work, including peer reviews for scientific journals and organizations, standardization work and conference organization.

Research fields

Henrik Møller's research interests are within human perception of sound and psychoacoustics, measurement and assessment of noise including its effect on humans, low frequency noise and infrasound, electroacoustics, psychometric methods and audiometry,binaural technology for recording and playback with preserved 3D effects, binaural synthesis, 3D audio virtual reality. He has numerous publications, in particular dealing with effects of low frequency noise on humans and with binaural technology.
