Pete Marchetto

I'm a physicist by training, and an engineer by vocation. My research interests range from acoustic modems for underwater communication to stochastic clock synchronization using cosmic rays to reconstruction of biological systems by using finite element analysis and multiphysical modeling. Overall, I'd say my two missions in my work are to bring experimental tools to those in the life sciences studying meso- and macro-scale systems, and to pursue basic science in the process.

I'm currently the Engineering Physicist for the Hardware Engineering Team of the Bioacoustics Research Program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and also a second year graduate student in the Biological and Environmental Engineering Department at Cornell University. I'm also the Hardware TA for BEE4500. I'm a member of the APS, IEEE, ASA, AES, and Sigma Xi.
