Research Professor, (BME)

Oded Glitza received the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University, Israel, in 1975, 1977 and 1983, respectively. From 1968 to 1984 he was with the Signal Corps Research Laboratory of the Israeli Defense Forces. During 1984-1985 he was a Bantrell post-doctoral fellow at MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a consultant with the Speech Systems Technology Group at Lincoln Laboratory, Lexington, Massachusetts. From 1985 to early 2003 he was with the Acoustics and Speech Research Department, Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey, where his research was aimed at developing models of hearing and at creating perception based signal analysis methods for speech recognition, coding and evaluation. From 2003 to 2011 he was with Sensimetrics Corp., Malden, Massachusetts, where he continued to acquire and model basic knowledge of auditory physiology and of perception for the purpose of advancing speech, audio and hearing-aid technology. From 2005 to 2008 he was with the Sensory Communication Group at MIT. Since mid 2006 he is with the Hearing Research Center and with the Center for Biodynamics at Boston University, where he studies the role of brain rhythms in speech perception. In December 2010 he was appointed a Research Professor at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University. From 2017 to 2022 he was a Visiting Researcher with the Neuroscience Department, Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Frankfurt, Germany. Since 2022, he is a Visiting Professor with the Poeppel Lab at the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) for Neuroscience, in cooperation with Max Planck Society, Frankfurt, Germany.
