Meet the experts

We are the experts that wants to share articles, research and case studies concerning room acoustic design, communication and health issues in the indoor acoustic environment, that can be valuable for you as an architect, facility manager and others with an interest in room acoustics and how it impacts people using the spaces.

We want to exchange knowledge and be an inspiration to support the creation of an acoustic environment that optimises the outcomes of people’s activities in working, learning and healing environments.

Mai-Britt Beldam ...room acoustics have been a big part of my life and working first with room acoustics in education facilities in Denmark and now healthcare facilities globally has taught me one important thing: We are not there yet.
Carsten Svensson When I joined Ecophon I came across the book “Deaf Architects and Blind Acousticians?”, by Robert E. Apfel. This introduction to the subject of architectural acoustics made me very curious. How come there can be such a gap between the two professions...
Colin Campbell Ecophon basically challenged my thinking and understanding of acoustics in design. Acoustic quality in architecture was now tabled as being, not a luxury for specialist spaces but a commodity and necessity. Well, I never looked back and....
Andrea Harman Prior to my work at Ecophon I had not really considered acoustics as a conscious part of room design. I knew that places appeared noisy or quiet and that some spaces were easier for my hearing impaired father to communicate in than others...
Anne Pollet As an engineer in industrial risks, I wanted to give more importance to human in my job. In my previous experiences, I was working in health, safety, quality and environment and especially I appreciated a lot reducing human risks. Today at Ecophon, my mission is...
Alexey Archakov ...though my academic background as a radio engineer revolves around wave physics, I never thought I will work with sound waves travelling in public spaces. I rather thought about electromagnetic waves travelling in space. But as I got acquainted with room acoustics...
Arto Rauta I work for Ecophon as a concept developer. My job, to put it shortly, is to improve the sound environment for office workers. At the moment the tendency is towards smaller spaces per office worker, which is also more cost effective for employers. But as a consequence...
Claudia Pigoretti I'm one of those people who likes to interact with the other. To hear it. To exchange experiences, to listen to opinions. I like people! Starting from this premise, I realize that hearing is the direction I use the most. I love traveling and the best experiences...
Halvor Berg Since I was six years old, I have had a huge interest in sound. I started playing the guitar and singing at the age of six. I have listened to music, recorded songs, played concerts and there is no feeling like being there...
Holger Brokmann Being able to work in the field of applied science, I was able to experience the great impact of room acoustics and the various ways of acoustical treatments. This helps me understand the personal acoustical needs and enables me to develop the right concept based on...
Iveta Kralova ...opportunity to use information I have gained and I can spare more time on investigation how acoustic environment influence human´s health, behavior and work performance. Sound leads our senses and perception of the room. It does not have a visual appearance but is still important. Conversely – it has really huge impact.
Juan Negreira My parents, not long ago, informed me that both them and me started experiencing the power of sound in the very early stages of my life. Whom before-sound was an untameable, hyperactive little boy, turned into a much mellower kid...
Lauren Kruger ...this lead me to my current role as an advocate for sound in the South African built environment for Ecophon Saint-Gobain where I research the changing world of work; factors which influence productivity and wellbeing in the workplace with a focus on sound, psychoacoustics and user choice.
Shane Cryer I love buildings, especially historic buildings. I studied civil engineering and architecture at college, and building and property surveying at university. However, it wasn’t until I joined Ecophon that I was educated on the impact that design has on sound and...
Magda Szubert I have a dream that people who create indoor environment of dwellings, schools and offices – places where we spent most of our time - have in mind that they design these buildings also for people. I wish they would create them as if they were to be occupied by themselves. When I enter the room...
Manit Ramaiya ...I very well knew and understood quite early in the stages of my life, that the acoustic quality around us is an important element. Working in Mumbai, I never had to think deeply about how important is sound, room acoustics and peace of mind in general, as these were our daily battles indeed.
Maria Quinn My journey into the acoustic world began late in life! Sound was nothing I thought about, even though I worked as a nurse at a Heart Intensive Department, where it is constantly noisy and one always has to be on the alert.
Mikolaj Jarosz I remember my first day in primary school. Few faded images and two fresh non-visual impressions: pleasant turpentine smell of floor polish and overwhelming noise. Noise so intensive that it was a shock even for experienced preschool veteran. I felt myself so small...
Morten Roar Berg Acoustic design is my passion and my career. My ambition is to help tune the world as it is my understanding that sound and acoustics in the human habitat of the modern world is severely underappreciated. And before we can create a world where people...
Paige Hodsman I regularly engage with high-profile organisations to help them develop in-house acoustic guidelines, strategies and practical office acoustic solutions. I use psychoacoustic tools to help organisations plan...
Pauli Pallaskorpi I'm still enjoying the feeling that I´m doing an important work; nowadays “teaching” adults and helping them to design better indoor environments in terms of good sound. And when we talk about schools and kindergartens...
Rainer Machner A term is following me since my first days at Ecophon – interdisciplinary. Even my time at university was led by an interdisciplinary approach. The reason to decide about my study of hearing technology...
