Malcolm O. J. Hawksford was educated at Aston University in Birmingham, UK where he received his B.Sc. with first-class honours in 1968, Ph.D. in 1972 and D.Sc. in 2008. He is now Emeritus Professor within the School of Computing Science and Electronic Engineering at Essex University, Colchester, UK. Early research embraced delta- and sigma–delta modulation (SDM) applied to colour TV coding that under the award of a BBC Research Scholarship lead to a method of luminance and chrominance multiplexing exploiting digital time-compression, a forerunner of MAC/DMAC. Principal interests include audio engineering, electronic circuit design, error correction in amplifiers and signal processing focussing on loudspeakers, SDM, PWM linearization, spatial audio and telepresence. Malcolm is recipient of the AES Publications Award for the best contribution by an author of any age for JAES, volumes 45 and 46 and holds the AES Silver Medal awarded 2006 for major contributions to engineering research in the advancement of audio reproduction. Also, in 2014 he was awarded the Peter Barnett Memorial Award by the Institute of Acoustics, UK for his contributions in the field of electroacoustics extending over 4 decades. He is a chartered engineer and fellow of the AES, IET, and IOA. Malcolm has been formative chair of the AES Technical Committee on High-Resolution Audio and was a founding member of Acoustic Renaissance for Audio (ARA).
