Sebastian Braun

Researcher

About

My research interests are in the field of audio and acoustic signal processing, e.g. speech enhancement, microphone array processing, perceptual acoustics and spatial audio.

I work closely with product teams at Microsoft to develop algorithms to suppress noise, reverberation and interfering speakers, to clean up microphone signals for communication or speech recognition.
