We will be holding a meeting tomorrow night at 7:00 in Votey 211.
We will have two professional members attending, Terry Barret and
Margaret McMorrow. They are interested to learn about our chapter and
our Nicaragua project. Terry has volunteered to be our technical lead
for the project. She has a BSME (RPI'93) and has worked for a couple
years in an engineering consulting firm before joining IBM and working
for some years in equipment engineering and microlithography. From
'03-'05 she tried something different, studying Tibetan language at
UVa for six months and then two years in India, Nepal, and Tibet, with
monks and nuns at monastic colleges and monasteries. Now she's back
at IBM working in optical engineering, simulating and characterizing
image sensor chips for digital cameras.
Margaret is is hoping to get involved more with the professional
chapter in Vermont as well. She plans on attending the International
Conference with us.
At tomorrow's meeting we will discuss and register for the
International Conference. We can go to the computer lab after the
meeting and register online together, depending on our funding limit.
