IEEE is a multifaceted, global organization that needs a President with a unique set of leadership, technical vision, and people skills. As a Life Fellow who has held top IEEE leadership positions on three major boards, chaired six TAB committees, and was a society president, I believe I have the vision, knowledge, and experience to take the leading role. I communicate well, form partnerships, and support innovation.
I had multicultural exposure in my educational upbringing in Poland and Switzerland, followed by my 30-year professional career in the United States. I spent sabbaticals at Princeton and leading universities in Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore. In addition to English, I speak Polish, German, French, and Russian. This experience has significantly shaped my outlook and given me the confidence and skills to be an effective leader of the increasingly global IEEE.
