Charlie Mydlarz

Post-doctoral Researcher

Charlie Mydlarz is a postdoctoral researcher at NYU’s CUSP and the Music and Audio Research Laboratory.  He works on the development and implementation of cyberphysical systems for large scale, high resolution soundscape data capture from urban environments with a focus on acoustic sensor development using digital MEMS microphone solutions. He received his BSc in Audio Technology from The University of Salford in 2007 and went on to earn his doctorate in 2013 investigating human relationships to sound environments using mobile and internet technologies. The data collected during his doctoral work was gathered using a large-scale crowd sourced citizen science project utilizing consumer mobile devices and web technologies, which can be explored at www.soundaroundyou.com. Past research projects also include the influences of sound environments on the attainment of 11-16 year old school children in England. Charlie’s expertise lies in: acoustics, electronic engineering, audio systems, mobile application development, acoustic ecology, digital signal processing, web development and quantitative data analysis.
