Why Acoustics?
“When I was growing up, I attended many concerts at Severance Hall, home of the Cleveland Orchestra. I was fascinated how the hall could shape the sound of an orchestra. When it came time to apply to colleges, I was split between a career in music and a career in engineering. I ultimately chose engineering and soon learned about the field of acoustics. It became clear that acoustics was the field I could be most passionate about.”

Fun Fact
