My name is Nina Rouhanizadeh and I’m pleased to introduce myself as the new Chair of IEEE Women in Engineering for the Chicago Section. I’m currently working as an LTE Technical Support Engineer at Nokia with more than 8 years of work experience, and a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois at Chicago.

I would like to thank the outgoing IEEE WIE Chair, Lisa Schoedel, for organizing great and successful events for the past two and a half years. I’m very excited to continue bringing quality programs to our chapter. I’m currently in the process of planning our events for 2018, and I will inform you when we have confirmed events. In the meantime, if you have meeting ideas or suggestions, I would love to hear about them! Feel free to contact me.

I look forward to having a successful, productive, and exciting year ahead with all of you!
