Before Bill became the Managing Editor of Spectator, the journal did not have a strong on-line presence and it wasn’t as professional as it is now. He is extremely well organized and productive and makes everything run smoothly. And in his position as Assistant Chair of the Division, he has made the job of chair a lot more manageable. At the same time, his work is always original and compelling. Bill was one of my most accomplished doctoral students, who has published cutting edge work on sound.
