Laura Brill (Class of ’06) has found a way to combine both of her academic interests in Theatre and Physics through Acoustical Engineering at Nebraska’s Wesleyan University. Brill began research at her university’s theater in order to make recommendations for changes that could enhance the sounds an audience hears. Following her research position last summer at the Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha, the Acoustical Society of American in Indianapolis, Indiana accepted Brill to their 168th meeting, where she spent a week presenting her research and consulting with other acoustical engineering scientists. As a current senior, she plans to attend graduate school for theatre design, focusing on optimized sound. This PS Alumni has paved her own academic path and we know we will continue to see amazing strides from her work.
