IEEE Fellow

Q: What inspired you to become an engineer? Were you always interested in technology? If so, why? If not, when did you become interested and why?

A: I knew I was going to become an electrical engineer from a very young age. I was influenced by my father, who was a mechanical engineer, and I never doubted my interest in pursuing a career in engineering. As a student, I excelled at math and computer science – when they became available during my undergraduate years, that is!
