Stewart Glegg is currently the Director of the Center for Acoustics and Vibration at FAU. He was an Associate Editor for the AIAA Journal (1994-97) and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Sound and Vibration and the Journal of Aeroacoustics. In May 2004 he was awarded the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics Aeroacoustics Award for "Outstanding contributions to the understanding and reduction of fan noise in turbo machinery". He has published over 140 technical papers in leading scientific and engineering journals. William Devenport joined the faculty at the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering at Virginia Tech in 1989 and has built an extensive research program centered on experimental studies of aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. He is Director of the Virginia Tech Stability Wind Tunnel and Director of the Center for Renewable Energy and Aerodynamic Testing (CREATe). He has published over 170 technical articles and is recognized for his contributions to the understanding of vortex dominated flows, roughness noise, leading edge noise and noise from inhomogeneous turbulence as well as contributions to aeroacoustic facility design and instrumentation.
