Ph.D. student Steve Tjoa was named the new President of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Association (ECEGSA). Steve succeeds Song Li as President, and will serve in his new leadership role with the ECEGSA from July 2007 through June 2008.

Steve, who hails from Succasunna, N.J., received a B.S. degree in computer engineering in 2004 and an M.S. degree in electrical engineering in 2006, both from the University of Maryland. He currently serves as a graduate research assistant in the Signals and Information Research Group, and is advised by Professor K. J. Ray Liu. His research focuses on multimedia signal processing and forensics.

The ECEGSA is a graduate student organization aimed at improving the quality of education and life for graduate students and developing a sense of community through social, academic and professional activities. The ECEGSA sponsors a weekly seminar and coffee hour as well as social outings and career fairs. Last year, the ECEGSA received the University of Maryland's 2006 Golden Geese Award, a prize given annually to recognize a graduate student group that does the most to assist fellow students in their adjustment, matriculation, and retention in graduate school. The ECEGSA received the award based on the number and quality of programs provided, the group’s focus on supporting fellow graduate students, and the ECEGSA’s efforts to foster student community.
