White elected Fellow of ASA
Associate Professor Robert White of the Department of Mechanical Engineering was recently elected as a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America. According to the prestigious society, he was chosen “for his advancements in microelectromechanical systems.” White was one of five new Fellows inducted at the society’s semi-annual meeting in Chicago in May 2023.
White earned his BS and MS from MIT. After receiving his PhD from the University of Michigan in 2005, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tufts. His research interests span device development and engineering science in micro- and nano-technology, with an emphasis on acoustic sensing, wind tunnel instrumentation, aerodynamic measurements, dynamic systems, and robotic systems.
White’s key contributions to engineering science have been in acoustic microsystems, aerodynamic measurement technologies, and physical cochlear models. As the founding director and current faculty advisor of the Tufts Micro and Nano Fabrication Facility, White is passionate about providing the Tufts community with micro and nano characterization and fabrication services.
The Acoustical Society of America was established in 1929 and serves as a hub for academics, industry professionals, and enthusiasts to research and share knowledge about acoustics. Members develop industry standards for areas including acoustics, mechanical vibration and shock, and more.
