focusing, wave propagation in inhomogeneous media, and nonlinear modeling. She is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA; since 2008) and has served as a member on the Executive Council of the ASA (from 2012 to 2015) and the Board of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (Seattle, WA; from 2004 to 2008 and 2011 to 2014).
Robin O. Cleveland is a professor of engineering science at the University of Oxford (Oxford, UK) and is based at the Biomedical Ultrasound, Biotherapy and Biopharmaceuticals Laboratory (BUBBL) at the Institute of Biomedical Engineer- ing, University of Oxford. His active areas of research include therapeutic use of ultrasound for ablation and drug delivery, ultrasound neuromodulation, mechanisms of traumatic brain injury, and the use of shock waves to break kidney stones. He is
a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and a past associate editor of the The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. He is the chair of the next International Symposium on Nonlinear
Acoustics to be held in Oxford in 2021.
Philippe Blanc-Benon is a Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) senior scientist and director of the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics, a CNRS unit associated with the École Centrale de Lyon, University Lyon I, and Institut National des Sciences
Appliquées de Lyon, France. His researches focus on the propa- gation of acoustic waves in random media, nonlinear acoustics, wave-turbulence interactions, and thermoacoustics. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (since 2006) and a recipient of the medal of the French Acoustical Society in
2017. He serves as an associate editor in atmospheric acoustics and aeroacoustics for The Journal of the Acoustical Society of
America (since 2009).
Mark F. Hamilton is the W. A. (Bill) Cunningham Professor in Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) and research professor at the UT Austin Applied Research Labo- ratories. He conducts research in the area of physical acoustics, particularly nonlinear acoustics and often in relation to bio- medical applications. He is a Fellow and former president of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and a recipient of the ASA Helmholtz-Rayleigh Silver Medal. He has served since 2005 as general secretary of the International Organizing Committee for the International Symposia on Nonlinear Acoustics and since 2013 on the International Commission for Acoustics.
   Women in Acoustics
The ASA's Women in Acoustics Committee was created in 1995 to address the need to foster a supportive atmosphere within the Society and within the scientific community at large, ultimately encouraging women to pursue rewarding and satisfying careers in acoustics.
