Title: Acoustic Consultant
Company: Browning Biotech
Location: Kingston, Rhode Island, United States

David G. Browning, Acoustic Consultant at Browning Biotech, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists and Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in acoustics.

Commencing his career as a physicist for the Naval Underwater Warfare Center in New London, CT, in 1965, Mr. Browning cultivated an interest in sound absorption from a formative age, having spent much of his time near the ocean. Interested in the absorption of sound in seawater, he studied sonar design at the center, explaining that absorption increases as frequency escalates. Conducting research in underwater acoustics, such as ambient noise and sound propagation, he considers his career to have been both fruitful and fulfilling.

Serving the Naval Underwater Warfare Center for nearly four decades, Mr. Browning simultaneously acted as a research scientist at the University of Connecticut, Avery Point, for two years. After this appointment, he was an adjunct professor of physics at the University of Rhode Island from 1996 until attaining emeritus status in 2016. Since his retirement, he has served as an acoustics consultant at Browning Biotech in Kingston, RI. Alongside his primary roles, he was an exchange scientist at the Defense Science Establishment in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1973 and the Defense Research Establishment in Victoria, Canada, in 1983, having also served as a visiting scientist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA, in 1979.

To prepare for his career, Mr. Browning received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Rhode Island in 1958 and Master of Science in acoustics from Michigan State University in 1961. In order to remain abreast of developments within the field, he maintains affiliation with several organizations, including the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Sigma Xi, Sigma Pi Sigma and the United States Naval Institute. He is also a former member of the Canada Acoustical Society and the New Zealand Association of Scientists.

Mr. Browning has contributed myriad articles to professional journals during his tenure. As a testament to his success, he was elected a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America. He was also featured in the second edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, published in 1993. However, the highlight of his career was when he identified a mechanism that absorbs low frequency sound unknown beforehand in seawater.

Currently conducting research in ocean acidification as a result of global warming, Mr. Browning is a native of Wakefield, RI. In his spare time, he enjoys keeping up-to-date with contemporary scientific news and events.
