Francesco Aletta

I was born and raised in Naples (Italy, 1986). I am a chartered Architect, Urban Sound Planner and PhD in Environmental design and management. I have been working as Research Associate at the School of Architecture of the University of Sheffield (UK) since 2013, with a research focus on soundscape and environmental acoustics, within a EU-funded ITN "Marie Curie" action (SONORUS). During this period I have been teaching in building physics university modules at the University of Sheffield and have been a guest lecturer at  Birmingham City University. Recently, I achieved the Associate Fellow status of The Higher Education Academy in recognition of attainment against the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and learning support in higher education , and become full member of the Italian Acoustical Society (AIA).Since October 2016, I work as post-doctoral researcher at Ghent University within the AcustiCare project. I publish and serve as referee for several peer-reviewed international journals and I am an editorial board member of the Frontiers in Psychology journal (Section: Environmental Psychology). I have been guest-editor for the Building Acoustics (SAGE) journal.
