I am pleased to announce our new graduate coordinators for FY14, Elizabeth Gregory and Elly Sinkala.
Elizabeth will be the new FY14 Graduate Member Coordinator-Elect. She is originally from Kansas. She received my BS in aerospace engineering from the University of Kansas, her MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and is currently pursuing her PhD in Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University.
Elly has already begun her role as the WE14 Graduate Programming Coordinator. She is currently a postdoctoral associate at the University of California at Berkeley. Elly recently received her PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The Graduate Member Coordinator (GMC) works to foster a strong community and network for graduate students in SWE by facilitating communication between graduate students in SWE and SWE graduate student groups, and by representing the interests of graduate students to the Society.
The Graduate Programming Coordinator (GPC) works with a dedicated team of graduate students and professional SWE members to create a diverse track of sessions for current graduate students, and for those who are considering going to graduate school.
Both positions are held for two years, the first year as the coordinator-elect learning the ropes and the second year as coordinator. Elizabeth will be working with Shivani Gupta, the FY14 GMC, and Elly will be working with Marcella Vaicik, the WE13 GPC.
