M.A., Christian Education – Dallas Theological Seminary
M.S., Audio Acoustics – University of Salford (England)
B.S., Electrical Engineering – University of Florida
Prof. Nine teaches upper school math and physics and has been with Cambridge since 2015. During undergrad years, her coursework specialized in the mathematics of signal processing, and for her honors thesis project she used C++ to program a microprocessor which optimized the attenuation performance of a loudspeaker limiter circuit. For her master’s level thesis project, she tried to reproduce an acoustical “iridescence” effect, an analogue to traditional visual iridescence. To do this, she used COMSOL Multiphysics software with a Matlab interface to design and calculate the wavenumber and characteristic impedance of a given acoustic metamaterial at varying incidence angles. During her summers between courses, she worked in numerous engineering internships with organizations ranging from NASA to General Electric. Before coming to Cambridge, Prof. Nine spent a few years as an engineer in Boston, MA for COMSOL Multiphysics. There she taught courses and explained to fellow engineers how to best use the finite element modeling (FEM) software to simulate the applicable physics couplings related to their own custom design prototypes. Upon moving to the Dallas area and while working on her seminary courses, she taught Physics and New Testament classes for one year at Heritage Christian Academy in Rockwall, TX. Prof. Nine also has a minor in cello performance and has studied and performed abroad in Salzburg, Austria. She is a member of The Village Church (Flower Mound), and in her free time she likes playing video games, taking long walks, and spending quality time with her husband and two young children, Annelise and Levi.
