Joseph (Joe) G. Tylka is an Assistant in Research at the 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics (3D3A) Laboratory and a graduate student in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. He received his B.S. in physics from the University of Maryland, College Park, where he graduated cum laude with a minor in philosophy in May 2012. He subsequently received his M.A. in mechanical and aerospace engineering from Princeton University with a concentration in acoustics and signal processing in September 2014. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. and conducting his dissertation research on navigation and binaural rendering of recorded 3D sound fields. Beyond his Ph.D., Joe intends to transition into environmental research in order to tackle problems in the field of climate science and ultimately help address anthropogenic climate change. His research interests include climate change feedback mechanisms, physical modeling of environmental processes, and signal processing.
