Two 2015 graduates of the University of Hartford's College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) recently presented their research to a full house at the international noise conference, INTER-NOISE 2015, held in San Francisco in August.
Ethan Bourdeau ‘15 and Kevin Zheng ’15 presented aspects of their work assessing pedestrian exposure to noise levels in New York City under the supervision of Dr. Eoin King, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and acoustics in CETA.
Both students were awarded the Hallberg Foundation Award from the Institute of Noise Control Engineering for their work. The research was supported by funding from the University of Hartford under a 2014–2015 Greenberg Junior Faculty Grant.
Dr. Enda Murphy, who was a visiting Fulbright scholar at CETA from February to August 2015, also presented at INTER-NOISE. While at UHart, Murphy worked closely with King to assess the accuracy of smart phones as noise measurement devices.
Congratulations to all.
