ECE Ph.D. student Eduardo Arvelo was named the new President of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Association (ECEGSA). Eduardo succeeds Steve Tjoa as President, and will serve in his new leadership role with the ECEGSA from July 2008 through June 2009.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Eduardo was an undergraduate student (B.S., '06) at University of Maryland before becoming a doctoral student. He served on the ECEGSA board last year and is familiar with all of the organization's activities. His advisor is Prof. Nuno Martins, and his research focus is on Networked Control. This fall, he will start his third year as a graduate student in the department. Outside school, he enjoys watching old movies and intensely follows politics.

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.
