Welcome to the Sound and Vibrations Laboratory (SVL)

We are located at 1017 Furnas Hall, part of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department at the University at Buffalo (SUNY). Our group carries out research that falls under the overarching themes of vibrations, acoustics, and smart materials. We apply theoretical, computational and experimental tools to control and manipulate sound waves, design tunable and adaptive elastic structures, harvest ambient energy, and create mechanical systems with properties that are, otherwise, not feasible. Please see our research page for more info.

Current Opportunities

The SVL has openings for motivated MS and PhD students seeking admission for spring and fall 2022 to carry out research in the different SVL projects.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in mechanical vibrations, dynamic systems and controls. Good command of MATLAB. Familiarity with finite element modeling & analysis. Language Proficiency (written & oral). Journal/conference publications is a plus but not required.

For inquires, please contact Dr. Mostafa Nouh by email with a CV/resume and a brief description of interests & qualifications.
