It is my third term of service with Graduate Student Society (GSS). I served as Vice President of University Affairs for the GSS from 2015 to 2016, President from 2016 to 2017 and now I am honored and humbled to have been re-elected as President of the GSS for the coming year. Currently, I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering carrying out my research on Embedded Vision and Video Processing. Besides that, I am also an IEEE executive committee member for Windsor Section and student representative of ECE department for two consecutive years since 2015.

With this position, I shoulder a lot of responsibilities. I would love to work for the students from the root level and to hear constructive feedbacks from students so that we all together could improve graduate students’ experience in our University. I believe that the success from previous years’ events evidence that the GSS is heading in the right direction; all the GSS events experienced at least double the participants from the previous year. So we need to keep the GSS in this direction, try to improve and strengthen it in all aspects. As the re-elected President, I will put forward my best efforts to represent and vocalize the graduate students’ views and needs. I will conduct myself with the utmost honesty and sincerity. I would appreciate all your constructive thoughts to help me work better and to maintain the high standards of the GSS. Please help me to make our voices heard. As the President of the GSS, I promise the graduate students a fun-filled, enjoyable, and accountable journey for the academic year 2017-2018
