NAG Meeting 03-14-12

Ahhh, the end of a semester!  April is notoriously difficult, and so it is with upkeep of this blog!  Our group has been tremendously busy, and here finally are some posts on our activities.

NAG met on 3/14, right before spring break.  Eric Powell had an opportunity through his internship to visit Harman International headquarters in California, and shared with us his experiences on that trip, including a link to Harman’s ‘How to Listen’ blog.

Carl Hart shared this meeting’s acoustic nugget: “Nine Flying Robots Play 007 Theme”   What will robots be able to do next?!  And James Cottrell presented on his MAE project, studying how material placement can impact classroom acoustics.

Timothy Hsu, a PhD candidate at Georgia Tech advised by NAG alum Dr. Erica Ryherd, came for the Durham School PhD Symposium on the following day (3/15) and many of us were happy to welcome him to Nebraska and attend his presentation on “The Links Between Acoustics and Human Outcome Measures in Hospitals”.

Coming up soon on the NAG calendar… a trip to Kansas City to visit the new Kauffman Center!
