Distinguished Professor Ronald Miles is Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at SUNY Binghamton. His research involves mechanics, acoustics, vibrations, MEMS, neurobiology, and control systems to create advanced microacoustic sensors--devices that have wide applications in consumer electronics, lab instrumentation, automotive, hearing aids and other healthcare applications. Dr. Miles received a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley MS and PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Washington. He has worked on structural acoustics and noise control at Boeing, was an assistant research engineer and lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley and a faculty fellow in the Structural Acoustics Branch at NASA Langley. He currently serves as Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics.
