Lily Wang, professor of architectural engineering and construction, has been named president-elect of the Acoustical Society of America for the 2017-18 term.

Wang also serves as associate dean for graduate programs and faculty development in the College of Engineering. She will begin serving as the ASA president in 2018-19 and will serve as past president in 2019-20.

“I plan to work hard, moving the society forward in line with the recent ‘Strategic Leadership for the Future’ plan," Wang said. "Specifically, I am interested in developing new ways for our society to serve members from different sectors better -- particularly those in industry and internationally -- and in expanding promotion of ASA’s activities to those outside of our society.”

The society, formed in 1929, comprises about 7,000 members from the United States and elsewhere. Those members conduct studies of noise, its measurement, its effects, and ways of reducing it to improve the human environment.
