Katrina Scherebnyj is a professional engineer that has been involved in acoustic research and consultancy for the last decade. While studying at the University of British Columbia, she collaborated with the Vancouver International Airport to research the likelihood of annoyance due to aircraft engine run-up noise. She has also gained acoustic consultancy experience working for large multi-disciplinary companies in England.


Katrina has worked on wide range of national and international projects. Her work has involved acoustic design services for performance spaces, cinemas, laboratories, office buildings, hotels, residential buildings, hospitals and healthcare facilities, and schools, universities and higher education facilities. She also has extensive experience modelling both room acoustics (using Odeon) and environmental noise (using SoundPLAN and Cadna/A).


Recently, Katrina was involved in the acoustic design of the GoodLife Fitness Autism Family Hub in Richmond, tenant fit-out projects downtown Vancouver (for Microsoft and for Sony), BC Children’s and Women’s Teck Acute Care Centre, and an Environmental Noise Impact Assessment for an industrial rebuild project along the Burrard Inlet.


Katrina has published works in several acoustics journals and co-authored a design guide for music accommodation in secondary schools that was recently published by the UK Department for Education.
