Adam Buck, a PKI Scott Scholar studying architectural engineering, was selected for the 2011-12 Robert W. Young Award for Undergraduate Student Research from the Acoustical Society of America. As part of UNL's UCARE program, Adam has been working on the research project "Just Noticeable Difference of Reverberation Time". Reverberation time is one of the most common parameters for room acoustics, and this study is trying to find how much the reverberation time must change for people to perceive the change. The ASA Robert W. Young Award will help fund Adam's continued research.
