President - Parker Ackerknecht email: 

Hello, my name is Parker Ackerknecht. I am the current president of IEEE CU Boulder Branch. I am currently a student in electrical engineering. I got into electrical engineering through some of the classes I took in high school and was intrigued by the possibilities that this major can offer. I, along with my wonderful board, are working on making this club be more active and involved with activities. I believe that IEEE is something that can connect undergrad, grad, and faculty to discuss more and create a proper community amongst the ECEN department, as well as other departments that are involved with computers or electronic devices. 

Treasurer- Matthew Cerza

Hi! I’m Matthew, the current Treasurer of the IEEE CU Boulder Branch. I am currently a junior studying Electrical and Computer Engineering. While I don’t have an extensive background in financial management, I am passionate about helping the IEEE club bring helpful and informative events and workshops to CU students, and am very interested in learning the inner workings of managing the monetary aspects of a club. I believe that IEEE is an invaluable resource for engineering students, and we have a responsibility to keep it afloat socially and monetarily.

Secretary - Jordan Louie email:

Heyo, Jordan here! I’m a Professional Master student in Electrical Engineering and I’ll be serving as the Secretary of the IEEE CU Boulder Branch for the upcoming semester. My main role here will be to support administrative tasks here on the board and find new opportunities for our members. I really hope to make IEEE an approachable environment where students can engage with ECE in a creative way without the pressure of deadlines and grades. I’m really interested in embedded systems since it deals with the intersection of electrical engineering and software and like working on projects that involve both disciplines. In my free time I enjoy tinkering with wacky electronic projects or playing board games with friends (highly recommend Quacks of Quedlinburg). I also enjoy strategy and fighting games and main Little Mac in Smash Bros

Dircteor of Events - Kenzie Ballif

Hey, I'm Kenzie. I'm a junior in electrical engineering and I'm working as director of events for IEEE. As a board member, I hope to help others develop their electronics and engineering skills as well as create an inclusive community in the ECE department. In my free time I like to do pretty much anything outdoors, especially hiking and skiing. I'm looking forward to being involved with IEEE this year!

Director of Events - Lauren Egaas

My name is Lauren Egaas and I’m a third year Electrical Engineering student. I’m excited to bring IEEE members exclusive workshops that cover electronics skills they won't learn about anywhere else at CU. My goal is to provide a sense of community and foster an enthusiasm for electronics and engineering. I look forward to meeting other IEEE members at our chapters’ events!

Director of Outreach - Jasleen Batra 

My name is Jasleen Batra, and I am the Director of Outreach! As the Director of Outreach, my goal is to create and strengthen professional development and networking within the department and industry. Academically, I am interested in aerospace and RF systems. During the Summer 2022 session, I was an engineering intern for NASA where I got to analyze how radiation impacts space systems and electronic hardware. I also participated in space weather research during my sophomore year. In my free time, I work on engineering projects, including a portable weather station and tornado tracker! Outside of academics, you can find me studying severe weather and tracking down tornadoes and hurricanes on radar. I also enjoy drinking tea and cracking crossword puzzles. I love talking to people, so please feel free to reach out to me at any time!
