Profile

Professor Horoshenkov holds a MEng in Electro-Acoustics and Ultrasonic Engineering from Moscow University for Radioengineering, Electronics and Automatics (Russia) and PhD in Computational and Experimental Acoustics from the University of Bradford (UK). Before accepting the position of a Personal Chair at the University of Sheffield in May 2013 worked at the University of Bradford where he progressed from a research assistant to a full professor.

Research Areas

Professor Horoshenkov’s main research interests are in novel sensors for water industry, novel acoustic materials and physical acoustics. His other areas of work relate to noise control, audio-visual interactions and design of nature-inspired noise control solutions.

A majority of funding for his research comes from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Royal Society, European Union and the industry. Professor Horoshenkov is a member of the EPSRC-sponsored Pennine Water Group at Sheffield, Chairman of the Research Coordination Committee of the Institute of Acoustics , member of the EPSRC Peer Review College, member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) and Journal of Applied Acoustics.

He has authored and co-authored 3 books, over 140 journal and conference papers, and 9 patents. In recognition of his contribution to the field of acoustics he was awarded the prestigious Tyndall Medal by the Institute of Acoustics in 2006. He is a founder of Acoutechs Limited, a spin-off University company, which was established in 2000 to exploit the results of his research related to Patent WO/2003/069595 on novel acoustic material manufacturing technology.
This technology is now licensed to Armacell and exploited globally with an average marked value of £10M per annum. In 2009 he received a Brian Mercer Award from the Royal Society of London www.youtube.com to exploit commercially the results of his other research on novel acoustic instrumentation for rapid inspection of underground pipes (Patent WO/2010/020817). This technology resulted in the new University spin-off company, Acoustic Sensing Technology Limited, of which he is a founder. This enterprise is sponsored by The North West Fund for Energy & Environmental.
