Dr. Anderson is currently working on projects in the areas of targeted speech communication and nondestructive evaluation using time reversal acoustics and nonlinear acoustics techniques. His work has application to search and rescue efforts, personal audio, and the safe storage of spent nuclear fuel.
Dr. Gee's primary research emphasis is the characterization of high-amplitude noise sources and fields through data analysis and imaging methods. In addition to his high-amplitude noise work, Dr. Gee has also published in other areas of acoustics including active noise control, near-field acoustical holography, vibroacoustics of musical instruments, and in the development and analysis of physics education demonstrations.
Dr. Leishman specializes in audio and architectural acoustics; excitation, measurement, modeling, and control of sound fields; and transducers, active control of sound and vibration, energy-based acoustics, and acoustical measurements. He has mentored many graduate and undergraduate students who are now employed as researchers, professors, acoustical consultants, loudspeaker designers, hearing aid designers, and more.
Dr. Neilsen's experience includes management and analysis of large acoustical data sets, numerical modeling of acoustic propagation, and development and employment of multi-dimensional inversion techniques. She analyzes military jet aircraft noise, examining near-field propagation effects, equivalent jet noise sources, and inverse methods such as near-field acoustical holography and beamforming.
Dr. Sommerfeldt focuses on active noise control and energy-based acoustics. One successful application of his research is mitigating the sound of computer fans. Dr. Sommerfeldt served as dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences from 2007 to 2017.
