Zach Weiss – Chair
Holding dual degrees in Acoustics and Music Performance, Zach enjoys approaching the study of sound from as many perspectives as possible. Joining NCE in May of 2018, he was attracted by the particular challenges inherent in marine noise and vibration, as well as the large variety of projects in NCE’s portfolio. Since then, he has performed measurements and analysis for studies concerning ship noise and vibration, underwater ambient noise, hydroelectric dam noise exposure and community noise issues, among many others. Prior to NCE, Zach held positions in both transportation noise control and architectural acoustics, working on acoustical studies of everything from large scale highway projects and performance venues to Air Force training bases and office buildings.
Bob Connick – Treasurer
Robert Connick is a Senior Consultant in Acoustics at Acentech, Inc in Cambridge, MA where his project concentration focuses in mechanical system noise control, vibration isolation, sound isolation, room acoustics, and acoustic modeling and auralizations. He holds a B.S. in Physics and Humanities and Arts, with a concentration in Music from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and a M.S. in Architectural Acoustics from Rennsellaer Polytechnic Institute.
Liz Lamour Croteau – Webmaster
Liz is an Audiovisual Design Consultant at Acentech and an Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music. She holds a Bachelor’s of Music from Berklee College of Music and a Master’s of Art in Architecture from the University of Kansas. A classically trained violinist, Liz became interested in the technology side of music early on in her Berklee studies, and majored in Music Production & Engineering, and Professional Music. Her interests in math, science, and music led her towards a graduate program at the University of Kansas, where she focused her studies on a variety of acoustics topics. She is the recipient of the Robert Bradford Newman Medal for Excellence in the Study of Architectural Acoustics, and has presented several papers and projects at national meetings of the Acoustical Society of America. Liz is a past Chair of the GBC.
Herb Singleton – Executive Board
