Research Interests

My principal research interest lies in the field of outdoor sound
propagation. Recent research has concentrated on improving outdoor sound
measurements by reducing wind noise in measurement microphones. We are
developing quantitative methods of predicting wind noise contributions
from measurements of the wind speed fluctuations. This work combines
meteorology, fluid dynamics and acoustics to develop and validate theoretical
expressions. An extensive measurement program has been very successful in
identifying inaccurate and wrong theories that have appeared in the literature.
