Other professional activities and achievements
Professor Brown`s main research interest is Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA), which aims to build machine systems that mimic the ability of human listeners to segregate complex mixtures of sound. He also has interests in noise-robust and reverberation-robust automatic speech recognition, models of auditory function in normal and impaired hearing, binaural modelling and the phonetics of overlapping speech. A recent interest is the application of CASA technology in mobile robot platforms. He is the co-editor (with DeLiang Wang) of Computational auditory scene analysis: Principles, Algorithms, and Applications (IEEE Press/Wiley-Interscience).
