Bio Katharina Groß-Vogt researches and teaches sonification (what's that?) and sonic interaction design, i.e. two  interdisciplines combining her backgrounds in music and science. She is currently employed as senior scientist at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM), University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria. Research projects covered, e.g., physics, climate science, or physiotherapy. For her thesis Sonification of Simulations in Computational Physics (Sonification examples) she received the Award of Excellence of the Austrian Ministry for Science and Research 2010. Groß-Vogt served as a board member at the International Community of Auditory Display (ICAD) 2012-16 and is part of the Steering Board of the Audio Mostly Conference (since 2020).
