Robert Aichner received the Dipl.-Ing. (FH) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences, Regensburg, Germany, in 2002. In 2000 he was an intern at Siemens Energy and Automation, Atlanta, Ga, USA. From 2001 to 2002, he did research at the Speech Open Lab of the R&D Division of the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) in Kyoto, Japan. There he was working on timedomain blind source separation of audio signals. Since 2002, he is a member of the research staff at the Chair of Multimedia Communications and Signal Processing at the University of Erlangen- Nuremberg, Germany. His current research interests includemultichannel adaptive algorithms for hands-free human-machine interfaces and their application to blind source separation, noise reduction, source localization, adaptive beamforming, and acoustic echo cancellation. In 2004, he was a visiting Researcher at the Sound and Image Processing Lab at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. He received the Stanglmeier Award for his intermediate diploma from the University of Applied Sciences, Regensburg, in 1999 and the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing in 2006.
