Ashwin Thomas, Associate

Including his graduate research work, Ashwin brings over five years of experience as an acoustical engineer to Wilson Ihrig. His previous work included room acoustic design and modeling, exterior and interior sound isolation, environmental noise study and modeling, building systems noise and vibration control, construction noise and vibration control, and auralization techniques. His course of study at Georgia Tech and UC Berkeley included a core focus on the dynamics of mechanical systems, vibration, and control systems. He is proficient with acoustical modeling (SoundPLAN, Odeon, Insul, AFMG Soundflow, IBANA-Calc), field measurement (LabView, EASERA Systune, DataPhysics SignalCalc), architectural drawing (Revit, Blubeam Revu, Sketchup, Revit, AutoCAD, Rhino), data processing and geospatial mapping (FME, ArcGIS), visual and audio design (Adobe CC, Audacity, Kolor 360, Oculus) software, as well as the following programming languages: Matlab, Simulink, Microsoft Office Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), Max/MSP, Grasshopper, C, & Visual Basic.

Why I Work at Wilson Ihrig

“Since its founding in 1966, Wilson Ihrig has been the leader in evaluating noise & vibration from transportation systems to where people live and work. Wilson Ihrig engineers have published authoritative guides for predicting the environmental impacts caused by mass transit and have developed mitigation measures where the means of control can be most effective. Wilson Ihrig is one of the top consulting firms that addresses rail noise & vibration, as well as building isolation. As such, I’m thrilled to have been given this opportunity to support and learn from the experts here.”
