While at the AES convention, Hawley met up with Belmont alumni Jon King and Jameson Elder.

Dr. Scott Hawley, associate professor of physics, joined faculty and staff of the Audio Engineering Technology (AET) department in attending the 135th International Convention of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) recently held in New York City.  Hawley, who teaches physics classes for AET students, presented a talk entitled “Fourier Transforms, Audio Engineering and the Quantum Nature of Reality.”

“As my first AES conference, it was tremendously eye-opening.  The level of mathematics and applied physics was higher than I expected, and will influence some of my research choices,” Hawley said. “I also formed new relationships which are already benefitting my classes, such as laboratory exercise suggestions by the Italian loudspeaker manufacturers who were interested in the connections between my quantum physics talk and similar equations arising in loudspeaker design.”
