Chris joined HMMH in April of 2016 as an Aviation Environmental Services consultant and works on a variety of projects in aviation, highway, and sound insulation. Chris mainly focuses on aviation noise modeling using the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) and Integrated Noise Model (INM) and the Federal Highway Administration’s Traffic Noise Model (TNM).
Prior to joining HMMH, Chris had two years of experience in architectural acoustics testing where he worked as an Acoustician at Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories. He designed a NVLAP accredited field testing program for a variety of ASTM standards and managed the laboratories compliance to existing test procedures. During his time at Riverbank, Chris co-authored a study with NASA Glenn Research Center designed to investigate the mounting methods of absorptive foam and the phenomenon of diffraction edge effect. During his time at Columbia College, he evaluated the acoustic performance of the Chicago Transit Authority’s Red Line rail cars and the perceived acoustic performance based on subjective responses.
Chris holds a B.S. in Acoustics from Columbia College in Chicago.
