Sound and music computing


internship in oticon

“I chose to switch around my thesis semester and internship, which in the end benifitted my path to a great internship at Oticon. I specialized my thesis project around spatialized sound, more specifically about how to simulate a loudspeaker setup through positional infrared tracking using non-individualized HRTFs. My mentor at the exam thought my project aligned good with a research project DTU and Oticon was working on. I had a few email conversations with Oticon and I got the internship working on their new project. During my internship, I had the privilege to work on two research projects that involved Virtual Reality, speech intelligibility, HRTFs, sound localization and gaze-tracking. All in relation to new research within the development of Cochlea Implants. I was responsible for getting the project ready for a conference held 2 months after I started. It was a lot of responsibility, but I liked the challenge and that I got to work on the newest technology and research within the hearing aid field. On top of that, I worked with a handful of other people, so I could get knowledge from others and work in a team. I thought this was a great way for me to work in a big and developed company within the sound and music computing field and get ready to the work life.”
