B. Kapralos received his B.S. (first class, with distinction), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from York University's Department of Computer Science and Engineering. His M.S. research was concerned with the development of a video teleconferencing system combining both audio and video cues to automatically detect and track multiple speakers in teleconferencing and remote learning applications. His Ph.D. dissertation investigated the development of sound synthesis techniques inspired by image synthesis and optics-based methods to model the acoustics of an environment in an efficient manner for dynamic virtual environment/reality applications. His current research interests include acoustical modeling, 3D (spatial) sound generation, multimodal virtual environments/reality and the perception of auditory events. He has held various teaching appointments at several institutions including York University's Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the University of Toronto's Department of Computer Science. He serves also as a Reviewer for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America and the Journal of Image and Vision Computing. He serves also as an Adjunct Professor in the graduate program at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, York University.
