Timothy Van Renterghem
Timothy Van Renterghem (born in Belgium, 1976) received in 1999 his degree in Bio-engineering (option : Environmental Technology) at Ghent University, Faculty of Agricultural and Applied Biological Sciences (nowadays Faculty of Bio-engineering Sciences). In October 2003, he obtained his Phd at the Faculty of Applied Sciences (nowadays Engineering and Architecture) at the Department of Information Technology, Research group Acoustics (nowadays WAVES). Timothy is currently Associate Professor in Environmental Acoustics, and teaches different courses related to noise pollution and acoustical instrumentation. In 2014, he was visiting Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Sheffield University (UK).
Timothy Van Renterghem is member of the Belgian Acoustical Society (ABAV), the European Acoustical Association (EAA), and the Acoustical Society of America (ASA). He is Associate-Editor of Acta Acustica united with Acustica (journal of the EAA) for the theme “Atmospheric Sound”. He is currently author of near 60 A1-publications and more than 100 publications in the proceedings of international congresses. His expertise mainly lies in the development of detailed numerical models to predict sound propagation (outdoors) and to design noise abatement solutions. There is a specific interest in the influence of meteorology, the interaction between sound waves and vegetation, and urban sound propagation. Use this link for more content related information.
