      Dr. Wilson is an Associate Professor in the Acoustics and Dynamic Systems & Control programs of the Mechanical Engineering Department, and holds a joint appointment as Associate Research Professor at Applied Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Austin. He joined the Cockrell School of Engineering faculty in August of 2003 after serving as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Boston University, where he studied sound propagation and scattering in bubbly liquids, and the acoustics of water-saturated marine sediments. Previous experience includes 3 years as a research engineer at Applied Research Laboratories, The University of Texas, 1994-1997, where he studied the acoustics of marine mammal sonar, developed a seismoacoustic mine detection sonar, seismoacoustic vehicle detection sensors and the Combustive Sound Source (a safe and inexpensive alternative to explosive sound sources for use in underwater acoustics experiments). In 2004 Dr. Wilson received a $300,000 Office of Naval Research Entry-Level Faculty Award in Ocean Acoustics for his Project Investigation of the Acoustics of Marine Sediments Using an Impedance Tube. He received the 2005 Office of Graduate Studies Outstanding Thesis/Report Award as supervisor to H. John Camin, III, for his thesis, "A Comparison of Spherical Wave Sediment Reflection Coefficient Measurements to Plane Wave Models". In 2007 Dr. Wilson received the A.B. Wood Medal and Prize from the UK Institute of Acoustics. Dr. Wilson's current research interests are ocean acoustics, physical acoustics and engineering acoustics, with concentrations on sound propagation and scattering in the ocean and in multiphase media, bioacoustics, novel acoustic materials and transduction. New areas this year are underwater anthropogenic noise abatement using large encapsulated bubbles, and novel use of acoustics and sonar technology in the fire fighting environment. Dr. Wilson is an Associate Editor with The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, serves as Chair of the ASA's Education in Acoustics Committee, and is President of the Austin Regional Chapter of the Acoustical Society of America.
