Dr. Ines Lopez Arteaga (research group Dynamics & Control, department of Mechanical Engineering) is since April 1, 2011 appointed as part time guest professor in ‘Vibro-acoustics of ground transportation systems’ at the Marcus Wallenberg Laboratory for Sound and Vibration Research (MWL), Department of Aeronautical an Vehicle Engineering, KTH, Stockholm. She is the first female professor in the field of Engineering Acoustics in Sweden.
Ines Lopez received her degree on Mechanical Engineering at the University of Navarra in San Sebastian (Spain) in 1993. She obtained her PhD at the same university in January 1999. Her work was titled "Theoretical and experimental analysis of ring-damped railway wheels". Until January 2001 she was researcher at CEIT (research institute in San Sebastian, Spain) where she mainly worked on noise and vibration reduction in railway applications. Then she moved to The Netherlands to work at DAF Trucks until January 2002 (noise analysis of cabin interiors using Statistical Energy Analysis, source localisation using Near-field Acoustic Holography) and later at INNAS BV (reduction of pressure pulsations from pumps). In September 2002 she started as post-doc at the Dynamics and Control research group. Since September 2003 she is assistant professor in the same group.
