    Prof Trevor Cox

    Trevor Cox is Professor of Acoustic Engineering at the University of Salford. He carries out research on architectural acoustics and audio perception. He was involved in the search for the "worst sounds" to the human ear and debunked the myth that a duck\s quack doesn't echo.

    In his new book "Sonic Wonderland" Prof Cox tells the story of his travels in search of the most amazing sounds in the world. He will play some of those sounds, and will explain how our body reacts to peculiar noises, the exotic and the everyday.

    Trevor Cox has appeared on the BBC Radio 4 science programme "Material World" on several occasions, including as mentor in the "so you want to be a scientist" competition, and has made over a dozen documentaries for the BBC.
