Biography

Nico Gößling received the B.Sc. degree in Media Technology with focus on Audio Technology from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, Germany, in 2013 and the M.Sc. degree in Hearing Technology and Audiology from the University of Oldenburg, Oldenburg, Germany, in 2016. From April 2016 to October 2020 he pursued the Dr.-Ing. degree at the Signal Processing Group of the University of Oldenburg, Oldenburg, Germany. His research interests are in the area of signal processing for acoustical applications, more specifically microphone array processing for binaural hearing devices and acoustic sensor networks. In 2018 Mr. Gößling received the Best Student Paper Award at the 16th International Workshop on Acoustic Signal Enhancement (IWAENC) in Tokyo, Japan. He is currently a Patent Attorney Candidate in Hamburg, Germany.
