Theodore Argo, Ph.D

Applied Research Associates
Principal Scientist
An acoustic scientist with experience in research into human hearing injury, hearing protection devices, instrumentation, and fast-running physics-based numerical code development. Dr. Argo has led development of human hearing studies focusing on laboratory methods for evaluation of hearing protection devices with human subjects and electromechanical test fixtures. He has developed custom instrumentation and analysis methods such as compressed gas shock tubes, electromechanical virtual speaker arrays, and an array of test surrogates ranging from biological specimens to standard test fixtures. Dr. Argo has also participated in the development of models of the human auditory system, hearing protection devices, and a cross-species comparison of blast waves interacting with the skull and brain. Dr. Argo is also a part of the Fast Air Target PENetration (FATEPEN) development team which maintains a physics-based semi-empirical fast-running engineering-level code for terminal ballistics. Prior to joining ARA, Dr. Argo was actively engaged in research to determine the effects of turnout gear on firefighter sound localization cues, materials characterization of bubbles and sediments, and measurement of frog vocalizations. Examples of experimental control systems range from a system for time-lapse acoustic/photographic monitoring of bubble dissolution and a system for dynamic call response to vocalizing Túngara frogs.
