CISTER Member plays key role in shaping IEEE program for young professionals

8, Dec, 2017

The IEEE Young Professionals program is run for members who are in an early stage of their career. It offers networking events with technical experts and industry leaders as well as a host of volunteering roles.

CISTER PhD candidate Shashank Gaur has been part of this leadership team for eight years. His role is to form partnerships across IEEE technical societies to find new opportunities for Young Professionals members. That includes helping develop micro volunteering roles for those who want to get involved with the organization but lack sufficient time. At CISTER, Gaur's PhD work focuses on context-aware computing in wireless sensor networks and the Internet of Things.
