Mr. Mark Dodd

GP声学集团研究负责人

彼得·巴内特纪念奖获得者

Head of GP Acoustics Research

the recipient of the Peter Barnett Memorial Award

Mark以物理学学士学位毕业于英国南安普顿大学,1981年在Vitavox开始了他的音频职业生涯,在那里他第一次体验了压缩扬声器单元设计,并于1986年在伦敦大学切尔西学院获得了应用声学硕士学位。然后他加入了Tannoy,在那里他为他们的同轴扬声器开发了“郁金香波导”相位塞,并在1992年维也纳AES大会上发表了他的第一篇论文。1994年,Mark加入了包括KEF和Celestion在内的GP声学集团,并于2001年成为集团研究负责人。自从加入GP声学公司以来,Mark在换能器设计中率先使用了有限元分析,并在AES、IOA和ISEAT会议上发表了多篇关于换能器设计的论文,近期也发表了一些关于箱体设计的论文。2016年,他被声学研究所授予了彼得·巴内特纪念奖,以表彰他对电声学领域的贡献。目前,他在GP声学多个研究项目中担任研究负责人。


Having graduated with a BSc in Physics from Southampton University in the UK Mark started his career in audio at Vitavox in 1981 where he had his first experience in compression driver design and gained a masters degree in applied acoustics at Chelsea College London University in 1986. He then joined Tannoy where he developed the 'Tulip Waveguide' phase plug for their coaxial drivers on which he presented his first paper in the 1992 AES convention in Vienna. In 1994 Mark joined GP Acoustics, a group including KEF and Celestion, becoming Head of group Research in 2001. Since joining GP Acoustics Mark has pioneered the use of Finite Element Analysis in transducer design presenting a several papers on transducer design and more recently on enclosure design at AES, IOA and ISEAT conferences. In 2016 Mark was awarded the Peter Barnett Memorial Award by the Institute of Acoustics for his contribution to the field of electro-acoustics and is currently working in his role of head of research for GP Acoustics on various research projects.
