Professional Bio

Tracianne B. Neilsen received a doctoral degree in physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2000 and completed a postdoctoral appointment at Applied Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Austin, where her research focused on optimization methods for source localization and environmental characterization from multi-source sound fields.  She joined the Acoustics Research Group at Brigham Young University in 2004.  Her experience includes management and analysis of large acoustical data sets, numerical modeling of acoustic propagation, and development and employment of multi-dimensional inversion techniques. Her current research analyzing military jet aircraft noise includes examining near-field propagation effects, equivalent jet noise sources, including wavepackets, and inverse methods such as near-field acoustical holography and beamforming.  She is also beginning research in modeling volcano noise and application of machine learning to source localization in underwater acoustics.
