Andrew Christian, NASA Langley Research Center
I am currently a research engineer dealing with psychoacoustics (the human response to sound/noise) at NASA. I am not sure how I got that job --- I doubt I would have arrived there if I were seeking it out directly. In past lives I have been a mathematician and a sound engineer for concerts/plays/etc.. I suppose that psychoacoustics is somewhere squarely in the middle of those two things.
I'm also a generally fascinated person, and relatively quick with computers, which is how I have wound up at SFI.
