M.S. Building Sciences, concentration in Architectural Acoustics, 2006, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
B.S. Mechanical Engineering, 2004, Georgia Institute of Technology
Shimby’s work at Kirkegaard covers a broad range of disciplines. He works with architects to develop the design and integration of room acoustics solutions, and also with mechanical engineers in the development of noise control systems. He can also be found working in Kirkegaard’s acoustic research facilities testing new products and materials.
Shimby received a Master’s Degree in the Architectural Sciences with a focus in Acoustics from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His thesis developed the use of computer modeling to simulate virtual acoustic environments and was presented at the Acoustic Society of America meeting in November, 2006.
Prior to completing his graduate studies, Shimby worked as an Architectural Acoustician in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When not designing architecture for sound, Shimby is an active musician.
Member of the Acoustical Society of America, Audio Engineering Society, Pi Tau Sigma Mechanical Engineering Honor Society.
