My research is in experimental, computational, and theoretical acoustics. Applications include planetary science, gas sensors, and array processing.
- Acoustic arrays for hands-free audio communications inside manned spacecraft.
- Predicting wind-generated noise for infrsound sensing on Mars.
- Quantitative Acoustic Relaxation Spectroscopy (QARS) for real-time monitoring of gas proceeses.
- Infrasound sensing on Mars: Theoretical study of dome-shaped wind noise filters.
- Modeling atmospheric wave propagation on Mars, Venus, and Titan.
- Absorption and dispersion of infrasound in Earth's lower thermosphere.
