Research interests: binaural signal processing, finite difference methods in acoustics, spherical array processing, spatial audio, room acoustics.

Bio: Jonathan received the PhD degree in acoustical engineering from Salford University, U.K., in 2013, for his research on binaural simulation and localization of sound. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow and a teaching fellow at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. His research interests are in virtual acoustics, and include binaural technology, numerical simulation, spherical array processing and spatial sound reproduction. Dr. Sheaffer is a 2014 recipient of the Robert B. Newman medal for merit in architectural acoustics awarded by the Acoustical Society of America.
