Bill Kapralos, Ph.D
Associate Professor

Dr. Bill Kapralos received his BSc (first class, with distinction), MSc and Ph.D from York University (Department of Computer Science and Engineering). His MSc research was concerned with the development of a video teleconferencing system combining both audio and video cues to automatically detect and track multiple speakers in teleconferencing and remote learning applications. His Ph.D dissertation investigated the development of sound synthesis techniques inspired by image synthesis and optics-based methods to model the acoustics of an environment in an efficient manner for dynamic virtual environment/reality applications. Dr. Kapralos’ current research interests include: acoustical modeling, 3D (spatial) sound generation, multi-modal virtual environments/reality and the perception of auditory events. He has held various teaching appointments at several institutions including York University (Department of Computer Science and Engineering) and the University of Toronto (Department of Computer Science). He is also a reviewer for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America and the Journal of Image and Vision Computing. Dr. Kapralos is also an Adjunct Professor in the graduate program in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at York University.
