“Receiving this award inspires me to continue working towards a better future for myself and those around me. I am appreciative of all the opportunities that have allowed me to capitalize and set me on this path towards happiness and success.

The Electrical Engineering Department has been instrumental in enabling me to achieve all that I have in my time at Carolina. The faculty has been beyond supportive of my endeavors, and I could not have achieved all I have without their presence. Dr. [David] Matolak introduced me to the world of research and helped me pursue my interests with vigor and discipline. Dr. [Kristen] Booth presented me with new opportunities, such as IEEE Eta-Kappa-Nu and being supportive along the way. And Dr. [Alphan] Sahin went out of his way to provide enriching lessons. My time here has been defined by their presence, and I am extremely thankful.”
