Zachary Russell

BSCmpE – Scholar since 2016

I am a third year transfer student from Armstrong State University studying Computer Engineering. I chose to transfer to Georgia Tech because of the multitude of resources and experiences Tech has to offer. My technical interests include computer architecture and organization, and I am eager to apply the skillset I have obtained at Georgia Tech in industry. In my free time, I love to go cycling and read historical non-fiction.

Benjamin Barger

BSEE – Scholar since 2016

My name is Benjamin. I am 26 years old, and have been an electronics hobbyist since I was 14.  At a young age, I was fascinated with all things electronic, and was often given broken gadgets by my parents to conduct autopsies on. As I got older, the autopsies shifted towards more careful surgeries and eventually lead to creating new life. I came to Georgia Tech to refine my skills and understandings of what makes things tick, and I hope to use my gained knowledge of Electrical Engineering in the field of assistive technologies to help those with disabilities live more comfortable lives.

Ryan Odari

BSEE – Scholar since 2016

I was born in Bhutan, grew up as a child in the refugee camp in Nepal and resettled in the United States seeking for better opportunities in life. I got my Associate of Science in Pre-Engineering from Georgia Perimeter College and transferred to Georgia Institute of Technology in the spring of 2016. I am currently a second year transferred student at Tech, working to achieve my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering. I am concerned to find out an efficient way of generating, transmitting and distributing electric power. I am interested in the standard for large-scale power transmission, such as a three-phase power system and want to specialize in Power electronics as I advance further in my career.

Moradeke Olumogba

BSEE – Scholar since 2016

My name is Moradeke Olumogba, but you can call me Rade or Rady – whichever one is easier for you to pronounce! I’m the upper middle child out of four and an Electrical Engineering major that is thoroughly enjoying the learning! What excites me most about it is seeing how logic and set theory is fundamental to digital design, whether it be hardware or software. It is amazing how we have brought together the study of language and mathematics culminating in Boolean Algebra.  It enables a computer interact with the human being! It is this interdisciplinary creativity that compelled me towards engineering, and seeing there is more abstract theory in to be realized, I’d like to encourage you to consider ECE!

Brandon Redder

BSEE – Scholar since 2016

I am a second semester transfer student from Georgia State University Perimeter College with Associate’s Degrees in Physics and Engineering. My main area of interest within Electrical Engineering is Industrial Automation and Control Systems, in which I’ve also accepted a Co-op position for this summer. Outside of school, I spend most of my time working with youth through the YMCA of Metro Atlanta and the Boy Scouts and volunteering with the Georgia Tech Invention Studio.

Olatide Omojaro

BSCmpE – Scholar since 2016

I am a Nigerian born second year transfer student, from Georgia Perimeter College, studying Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am very interested in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence and intend to pursue a doctoral degree in these areas. I have participated in several research experiences for undergraduates at various institutions researching robotics and artificial intelligence. This research has led to three publications in robotics and artificial intelligence. In my spare time, I enjoy promoting STEM education within under-represented communities and was recently recognized by President Obama for my volunteering service to promote Education. When I am not out bettering the community, I can be found participating in several start-up initiatives, playing and watching soccer, or video gaming.

Quentin Samuels

BSEE – Scholar since 2016

I am a fifth-year transfer student from Savannah State University. A goal of mine has always been to launch a startup company. I am actively learning about different research areas in the school of ECE to help narrow down my interest. I desire for my research to focus on developing a new technology or device that I can incorporate into a business.

Aisha Jackson

Aisha Jackson

BSEE – Scholar since 2015

This fall I transferred from Spelman College where I was a Computer Science major. At Spelman, I was a member of the Spelbots Robotics Team and really enjoyed participating in outreach activities. In the future, I plan on getting my masters and working in the corporate world. Recently, I celebrated my 22nd birthday on NYE in NYC!

MalikBarton

Malik Barton

BSEE – Scholar since 2015

My name is Malik Barton and I transferred from Dalton State College. I was born in the United States Virgin Islands and grew up in Stone Mountain, GA. I love to go on long runs, play sports of all kinds and listen to all kinds of music. I plan on going into Alternative Energy and Power Electronics.

Jpeg

Matthew Woford

BSEE – Scholar since 2015

I am a 29 year old electrician. I came back to school two years ago and I am excited to be here at Georgia Tech. I hope to learn more skills with software, hardware, and techniques used in power distribution and building design. My goal is to use my field experience with my degree and become a Helluva Engineer!

Prana Koirala

BSCmpE – Scholar since 2015

I am a senior Computer Engineering student at Georgia Tech, intended to pursue undergraduate degree  in Fall 2017. My area of focus and interest includes Computer Networking, Software Engineering & Embedded System. To view more detail about me, visit: https://www.linkedin.com/in/prana-koirala-77099865

HoaiNguyen

Hoai Nguyen

BSEE – Scholar since 2015

I started my major as accounting but then I found that I have interests in science and mathematics. I switched to electrical engineering, which I found the most interesting. I plan to work for a company where we plan and design power stations and equipment for generators.

Precious Gibson

BSEE – Scholar since 2015

I am a transfer from the Illustrious Spelman College who is participating in the Dual Degree Engineering Program. I was born in Albany, GA but grew up in Atlanta, GA. I enjoy going to the movies and hanging out with my friends. My passion lies within building new technologies that can be used by anyone in the world. My favorite class is IC Fabrication.
