Dr. Prasad has made significant research contributions to the field of acoustics and vibration. His pioneering work on acoustical source characterization of sources in ducts using direct and indirect methods has important applications to muffler design.
He is Director of the Noise and Vibration Control Laboratory, including anechoic and reverberation chambers. He has published 100 papers. Two papers have received awards. He has made several invited presentations at national and international meetings. Under NSF International Travel Grants, he has presented papers in conferences in France , China , and India . He has worked as a Noise Control Expert for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization. He has chaired ASME Technical Committee on Duct Acoustics. Currently, Dr. Prasad is the faculty advisor for ASME Student Section and also a co-advisor for Student Section of Engineers without Borders (EWB) at Stevens.
Dr. Prasad is a Fellow of Acoustical Society of America (ASA), Member of Institute of Noise Control Engineering, USA (INCE), Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Fellow of Acoustical Society of India (ASI), Member of Sigma Xi, and a Member of American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE).
