Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2003 and MSc in Engineering Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Russia) in 1995.
