Dr Torija Martinez is a Lecturer in Acoustical Engineering at the University of Salford. In 2010, he obtained his PhD in Environmental Acoustics from the University of Granada (Spain). Dr Torija Martinez has been the recipient of a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship, and from 2015 to 2019, he has been a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (University of Southampton).
Dr Torija Martinez is internationally recognised researcher with an excellent track record in the modelling of transportation noise (from road traffic to novel aircraft) and the assessment and management of community noise impact. He has published more than 30 papers in world-leading peer-reviewed journals, including Nature Energy, 44 papers in national and international conferences, 4 books/book chapters, and 1 patent (WO/2014/020213). Dr Torija has participated in several research projects funded by EPSRC, Innovate UK and industry.
Dr Torija Martinez has received five awards for my excellent contributions to Acoustics, including the Andres Lara Award from the Spanish Society of Acoustics.
He is a Human Response and Metrics expert in the NASA Urban Air Mobility Noise Working Group and an expert contributor to the NASA white paper on, Urban Air Mobility Noise: Current Practice, Gaps, and Recommendations.
