Recipient of Wallace Clement Sabine Medal
Lifetime Professor of Architectural Acoustics, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Visiting professor of Nanjing University
Ning Xiang教授现为美国伦斯勒理工大学（Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute）建声系主任、终身教授，现任南京大学、华南理工大学客座教授，是一位集理论和实践于一身的声学家，在国际声学领域享有很高的声誉，兼为美国声学学会Fellow、英国声学学会Fellow、美国声学学会会刊JASA副主编、美国JASA Express Letters副主编、德国声学学会会员、美国音频工程学会会员、美国噪声控制工程学会会员，经常应邀在各重要国际声学会议（ICA、ASA、AES、Inter-Noise）以及其他国际会议上做特邀声学报告。
2014年，因Ning Xiang教授在建筑声学领域的杰出成就荣获赛宾奖章。赛宾奖是美国声学学会为表彰国际上建筑声学有杰出贡献的学者而设立的荣誉奖章。Ning Xiang教授为自1957年设立该奖以来的第16位得主，也是首位获得赛宾奖的华人科学家。
Ning Xiang教授在建筑声学、双耳听觉技术、声学测量技术、室内声学模拟仿真技术和声学信号处理等领域均有独特的建树。2018年，世界上最著名的传记和名人录出版权威Marquis Who's Who隆重授予Ning Xiang博士Albert Nelson Marquis终身成就奖，他的成就对建筑声学以外的其他声学领域也有很大贡献。
Professor Ning Xiang is currently the director and Lifetime professor of the graduate program in Architectural Acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the United States. He is also a visiting professor in Nanjing University and South China University of Technology. Professor Xiang is a renowned acoustical physicist in the international academia of acoustics for his outstanding works in both theory and application. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), a Fellow of the Institute of Acoustics (IoA, United Kingdom) and a Member of German Acoustical Society, a Member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the Institute of Noise Control Engineering, USA. He is an Associate Editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and an Associate Editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America Express Letters. He is often invited to deliver presentations at many internationally influential acoustics conferences including ICA, ASA, AES, and Inter-Noise.
In 2014, for his distinguished achievement in the field of architectural acoustics, Professor Ning Xiang was awarded the Wallace Clement Sabine Medal. The Sabine Medal was established by ASA to acknowledge the scholars who make significant contributions to the knowledge of architectural acoustics. Professor Xiang is the 16th winner of the Medal since its establishment in 1957, and he is also the first Chinese scientist to receive the award.
Professor Xiang Ning has been making unique contributions to the fields of architectural acoustics, acoustical measurement technique, numerical simulation of sound, and acoustical signal processing. In 2018, He was awarded the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by Matquis Who's Who, the most well-known authority in biography. The achievement of Professor Xiang has been constructive not only to the field of architectural acoustics, but also to other acoustical fields.
