Pedro Cobo received a Master degree in physics in 1984 and a PhD degree in physics in 1988, both from the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. In 1987 he joined the Institute of Acoustics of Madrid, which belongs to the Superior Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), Spain. In 1989-1990 he carried out a postdoct stay at the Technical University of Delft (The Nederlands).
Since then, he has worked on various subjects of Acoustics, such as Underwater Acoustics (propagation, noise, reverberation, sonar transducers), Hearing (Auditory Brainstem Response, tinnitus treatment), Signal Processing (filtering, deconvolution, shaping of arbitrary waveforms) and Environmental Acoustics (noise assessment, passive and active noise control).
He has been involved in more than 50 R&D Projects, being Principal Investigator in 30 of them. He taught more than 55 specialized courses in Acoustics and supervised 8 Doctoral Thesis and 37 Master Thesis. He gave 21 lectures in several Universities and Institutions.
Dr. Cobo is member of the Spanish Acoustics Society, the European Acoustics Association, and the Acoustical Society of America. Furthermore, he is a current Reviewer for Applied Acoustics, Journal of Sound and Vibration, Acustica united with Acta Acustica, Noise Control Engineering Journal y Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.
