Kent L. Gee, an assistant professor of physics at Brigham Young University, will be honored with the R. Bruce Lindsay Award from the Acoustical Society of America at its national meeting in April.
The award will be given in recognition of Gee’s “contributions to the fields of jet noise propagation, nonlinear acoustics and active control of fan noise.”
“I am honored to be selected for this award,” Gee said. “I thank my fellow members for their encouragement. I hope to contribute to the growth and outreach of the society for many years to come.”
Gee earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physics from BYU. He went on to obtain a Ph.D. in acoustics from Penn State in 2005. Returning to BYU, he joined the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy in 2006.
He won the Martin Hirschorn IAC Best Paper Prize in 2004, the ASA’s “Outstanding Young Presenter in Noise” in 2006 and Penn State’s Kenneth T. Simowitz Award in 2005 and 2007. Additionally, six of his students have won paper prizes at national conferences since 2007.
The Acoustical Society of America was formed in 1929 and served as one of the founding societies of the American Institute of Physics. The organization has nearly 7,000 members who work in acoustics throughout the United States and abroad.
