Executive Board 2022


Executive Board 2022

  • Hi! I am Shiva, a current 4th year MS/PhD student with an expected graduation date in 2024. My current research focuses on Ultrasound Imaging, and before coming here, I got my undergraduate degree from Imperial College London (God save the Queen?). 

    I am an avid biker and a major football fan. When not at work, you can find me at a bar sipping a beer with friends or watching the latest sci-fi/fantasy movie, unless it is Sunday.

    I’m also currently the social chair of Graduate Electrical Engineering at Columbia (GEEC).

    If you have any questions relating to the EE department or EGSC, feel free to contact me at [email protected] 

  • Hi! I am a first year MS in the Electrical Engineering department with the intended graduation in Dec 2022. I love working on machine learning problems and my current research focuses on the Multimodal Learning and Computer Vision. I did my undergrad in India.

    I managed the Student’s Affairs Council of my undergrad university for a year which was a great experience.I would love to organise events along with putting our issues in front of the department whether it be any. It would be awesome if we all can interact (I know its hard but hey, let us make it easier together). A little more about me : I love doodling, art things and food. I also watch anime and read manga sometimes. I like thriller/psychological movies and series too. I also like to play FPS and strategy games. Hit me up for it. Fun fact : My nickname is longer than my name :p

    You can reach out to me on [email protected], always up for getting suggestions and feedbacks from the fellow batchmates and friends. LET US MAKE EE and SEAS AMAZING TOGETHER!!!

  • Hello friends, my name is Lama and I am thrilled to be your Department Representative this year

    MS, December 2022 (expected)

    I was born and raised in Los Angeles and recently graduated from UC Riverside. I am excited about representing students especially in engineering/SEAS as oftentimes our needs are overlooked. I look forward to a great year.

    I am available to chat and/or hear your thoughts anytime at [email protected]!

  • Hi all! I am a 4th year PhD student in Mechanical Engineering, and your Career & Alumni Chair! My research focuses cartilage mechanics.

    I am also President of the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Association (MEGA), and in my free time I love to cook and run.

    Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] if you have any questions, comments, or ideas for SEAS! 

  • Hello everyone!

    I’m Sravan, a fourth-year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering, working on autonomous magnetic resonance imaging.
    I am learning to play the guitar (love music!) and enjoy gaming. I’m looking forward to meeting new people through EGSC! :)

    Feel free to reach me at [email protected] if you have any questions, feedback or ideas for SEAS, or just want to grab a coffee!

    I’ll stick to tea

  • Hi! I am a MS in Computer Science student expected to graduate in December 2022. I obtained my BS in Mathematics from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne) with a year abroad at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

    I wanted to be CS department representative because I get genuinely excited about organizing events for fellow students to meet, socialize, exchange ideas, and benefit from the richly diverse set of perspectives and personalities present here at Columbia. My fun fact is that I have lived in 6 different countries (US, Korea, Switzerland, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Russia) and am trilingual (English/Korean/French).

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] for any questions/suggestions/feedback for the EGSC or the CS department :>

  • Hi, my name is Jacob and I’m a second year BME Ph.D. student co-advised by Dr. Alex Dranovsky and Dr. Andrew Laine. My research focuses on using deep learning methods to study how early life stress and aging alter brain-connectivity at the whole-brain level with cellular resolution.

    I grew up in the Bay Area, California, and recently completed both my undergrad. and master's in the BME  department at Columbia. Outside of research and class, I’ve been on the Columbia ski club for 5 years and spend time building things as a superuser in the Columbia Maker Space. I’ve also  co-founded a startup, Colonai, that uses deep learning to detect and localize colorectal cancer in colonoscopy videos in order to reduce the miss rate that's ~24% of tumors in current practice and that recently took 1st place in the Columbia Venture Competition Tech Track.

    Feel free to reach me at [email protected] if you have any questions, feedback or ideas for SEAS!
