Portrait of an Active Member of the Science & Technology Community

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dr. Juan I. Arvelo Jr. earned his undergraduate degree in Physics at the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) with magna cum laude and the Enrico Fermi award for best physics student. This was followed with a PhD degree in Physics at Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington DC, under Professor Emeritus Herbert Uberall. He has been an active member of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) since 1984. His active involvement commenced as president of the Washington DC chapter of the Acoustical Society followed by two terms as co-chair of the ASA Committee on Regional Chapters.

During this period, he was involved in educational outreach efforts targeting under-represented minorities in physics at annual conferences of the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), the National Society of Hispanic Physicists (NSHP) and the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans Scientists (SACNAS). As a result of his efforts to expose under-represented students to physics, he later became the ASA liaison member to the AIP Committee on Under-Represented Minorities (CURM) and chair of the ASA Committee on Diversity in Acoustics (CDA).

Dr. Arvelo also became associate editor of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) and the Proceedings on Meetings in Acoustics (POMA), where he ensures that manuscripts abide by their high technical standards before publication. Publication in JASA is coveted worldwide for the highest exposure in the acoustics community. For example, in 2011, JASA was cited more than 32,000 times while the second place journal had half the number of citations.

More recently, he became an Acoustics Today (AT) advisory board member chartered to steer the technical magazine’s direction to better serve the needs of the scientific community.
