Nathanael Mayo is a research scientist and experimental physicist at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) in Newport, RI. Dr. Mayo studied physics at the University of Texas at Dallas where he worked at the Nanotech Institute and earned his doctorate focused on ther-
moacoustic sound generation using conductive nanoma- terials (thermophones). Since graduating, he has worked within the Devices, Sensors, and Materials R&D branch at the NUWC, developing and testing carbon nanotube-based thermophones for underwater applications. His other inter- ests include conventional transducer design, textured ce- ramics, signal processing, and surface chemistry.
