Edda Bild

is an academic with a passion for sound.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University, in Montréal, Québec, Canada, working on urban soundscapes and their relationship to the use of urban spaces.

My interest for sound relates to developing and testing methodologies for documenting the urban auditory experience and findings ways of improving it in practice through intentional urban design and planning for the private and public sectors.

My work particularly has a strong outreach component and I engage in multi-and cross-disciplinary collaborations aiming to encourage sound awareness among practitioners, the private sector, and the public.

At present, I am doing research through my teaching and guest lecturer appointments at various Dutch and North American educational institutions (online and offline), and is based out of McGill University in Montréal, Québec, Canada.
