Prof. Chris Fuller
Finished his B.E.(Hons) and Ph.D. at Adelaide University, Australia in 1974 and 1978 respectively. His Ph.D. topic concerned re-active attenuation of sound in ducts.
He then spent three years at the ISVR, University of Southampton as a Research Fellow studying coupled vibrations in fluid-filled cylinders. After this, he moved to the U.S. where he worked at NASA Langley Research Center as an NRC Research Associate for two years studying control of aircraft inlet and interior noise.
In 1983 he accepted a faculty position at Virginia Tech where he is now the Samuel Langley Distinguished Professor of Engineering and is based primarily at the National Institute of Aerospace in Hampton, VA.
Prof. Fuller's current research interests are in acoustic meta materials, active control of sound and vibration, noise in aerospace systems and noise in medical systems.
Prof. Fuller has authored over one hundred and seventy papers in various major technical journals and holds over ten patents in active control and recently received the ASME 2017 Rayleigh Award for his work in acoustics. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and an Associate Fellow of the AIAA. Prof. Fuller has served on the Board of Directors of the International Institute of Sound and Vibration and the Institute of Noise Control Engineers. He is the lead author of the text Active Control of Vibration published by Academic Press.
