Prof. Cheng appointed as an Associate Editor of JASA

Prof. L. Cheng, Chair Professor and Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has recently been appointed as an Associate Editor of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, which is well accepted as the most prestigious journal in Acoustics.  

Since 1929, JASA has been the leading source of theoretical and experimental research results in the broad interdisciplinary subject of sound. The Journal serves physical scientists, life scientists, engineers, psychologists, physiologists, architects, musicians, and speech communication specialists.

This is the first time that JASA appointed scholars beyond North America and Europe in its editorial board. This appointment is the recognition of the research excellence of a group of PolyU scholars working in acoustics and related area under the Consortium for Sound and Vibration Research (CSVR). During the past ten years, PolyU staff produced more than 1% of total papers published in JASA, topping all other Institutions in Asia.
