The research interests of Steffen Marburg (b. 1965) encompass the development and application of numerical methods for vibroacoustics and aeroacoustics, the experimentally based virtual prototyping of complex models in combination with parameter identification, the consideration and identification of parameter variations and structural acoustic optimization. The applications are manifold and include automotive parts, ships, electric tools and musical instruments. Marburg graduated from TU Dresden where he was awarded a doctoral degree in 1998. Subsequently he stayed on at TU Dresden and in 2004 became a junior professor for Structural Acoustic Optimization/Boundary Element Methods. In 2010 he moved to the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich and became a full professor for Technical Dynamics. In 2015 he was awarded the new professorship for Vibroacoustics at TUM. Marburg is associate editor of the peer-reviewed journal Acta Acustica united with Acustica, editor of the Journal of Computational Acoustics and chair of the TC Computational Acoustics of the European Acoustics Association.
