ME assistant professor elected as Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America


Bogdan Popa, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, has been elected to the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) “for contributions to active acoustic metamaterials.”

The ASA is a scientific society dedicated to generating, disseminating, and promoting “the knowledge and practical applications of acoustics.” Scientists can become fellows if they have “rendered conspicuous service or made notable contributions to the advancement or diffusion of the knowledge of acoustics or the fostering of its practical applications.”

Dr. Popa’s broad research interest is on controlling the propagation of mechanical and electromagnetic waves with smart complex structures to influence physical processes in prescribed ways, to image and gain new knowledge on the surrounding environment, and/or to manipulate the perception of remote events.

Congratulations, Dr. Popa.
