Dr. Agnieszka Roginska is Music Associate Professor of Music Technology at the Steinhardt School, at New York University. In 1996 she received a Bachelor’s degree in music from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, with a double major in Piano Performance and Computer Applications in Music. After receiving an M.M. in Music Technology from New York University in 1998, she pursued doctoral studies at Northwestern University where she obtained a Ph.D. in 2004. At NYU, Dr. Roginska conducts research in the simulation and applications of immersive and 3D audio including the capture, analysis and synthesis of auditory environments, auditory displays and its applications in augmented acoustic sensing. She is the author of numerous publications in the areas of the acoustics and psychoacoustic of spatial sound, immersive audio and auditory displays, and is the co-editor of the book titled “Immersive Sound: The Art and Science of Binaural and Multi-Channel Audio”. Dr. Roginska is an AES Fellow and Governor, and is the faculty sponsor of the Society for Women in TeCHnology (SWiTCH) at NYU.
