Realizing and Pursuing Dreams

BS in EE, Binghamton, 2005
MS candidate in EE, Penn State University
I attended Binghamton University from 2001 to 2005 where I received a BS in Electrical Engineering from the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science.
During my years at Binghamton, I was very active in the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). I organized a number of projects including a recruiting workshop and a freshman book scholarship program. To compliment my undergraduate studies, I interned at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and Sensis Corporation during the summers of 2004 and 2005.
Through my coursework I became interested in the areas of signal processing and communications. With the support and continued guidance of Professor Mark Fowler, I was exposed to the many different and challenging problems in these fields and was encouraged to continue my studies at the graduate level. In 2005, I decided to pursue a master's degree in electrical engineering at Penn State University.
During the summer of 2006, I was a student intern at the Air Force Research Laboratory working on signal processing and communications problems.
Currently, I am a graduate student at Penn State University, where I am member of the Wireless Communications and Networking research group under the advisement of Associate Professor Aylin Yener. I also serve as the chief teaching assistant for a second-year circuits laboratory component in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Penn State. My duties include the coordination of teaching assistants, lab preparation and instructing an honors circuits lab.
My experiences as a student and teacher have given me a deeper appreciation for the great professors and teaching assistants that I have had. Binghamton University has given me a solid foundation and skill set, which I use every day as an engineer, student and teacher.
