Sascha Disch left the Institut für Informationsverabeitung.
Publications and research activities from the time after the departure are not listed here.

Sascha Disch received his Diplom-Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering from the Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) in 1999. From 1999 to 2007 he was with the Fraunhofer Institut für Integrierte Schaltungen (FhG-IIS), Erlangen, Germany. At Fraunhofer, he worked in research and development in the field of perceptual audio coding and audio processing, including parametric coding of surround sound. Currently he is pursuing the Ph.D. degree at the Laboratorium für Informationstechnologie, Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH), Germany. His research interests include audio signal processing/coding and digital audio effects.
