Congratulations to Constantin Coussios, Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Department, who has been selected as this year's recipient of the prestigious Acoustical Society of America R. Bruce Lindsay Award.

Constantin Coussios - ASA AwardThis Award is given annually by the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) to a single researcher, under the age of 35 across all fields of acoustics, who has made a significant research contribution to the field.  Professor Coussios will be presented with his Award formally at the ASA meeting due to be held in Hong Kong in Spring 2012. This will include $3,000 and a complete set of “The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America”.

Professor Coussios is only the second recipient of this Award in the Department – the 2000 R. Bruce Lindsay Award was presented to Professor Robin Cleveland, who joined the Department in October 2011 as a Professor of Engineering Science.

Since its establishment in 1929, the Society has grown steadily to a membership of about 7,500 men and women who work in all applications of acoustics throughout the U.S. and abroad
