WIE Webinar: Women in STEM Careers: Challenges & Opportunities

#wie #webinar #stem #ieee #leaders

WIE Piedmont Section has the pleasure to provide you Jill Gostin on a Webinar titled: Women in Stem Careers: Challenges & Opportunities.

WIE members we hope you are doing well and hope you can take some time off your schedule to join us in this upcoming webinar. We are sad that we cannot meet in person but we are glad for you to have the pleasure to meet Jill Gostin, our key speaker. 

Jill has been a great asset to IEEE. She's volunteer in various roles and held many positions. Her current signature reads 

"Principal Research Scientist

Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Lab

Georgia Tech Research Institute"

There's plenty to learn from Jill as we hear from her experience as a leading female on the engineering, mathematics and electronics community.

Jill Gostin,
Principal Research Scientist,
Sensors and Electromagnetic Application Laboratory,
Goergia Intitute of Technology


"Jill I. Gostin is a principal research scientist in the Sensors and Electromagnetics Application Laboratory (SEAL) at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. She is the former Deputy Director of the Information and Communications Laboratory (ICL) at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). At SEAL, before her ICL appointment, she worked extensively on software test and evaluation, including requirements analysis and risk management; some of her research projects included testing and assessment of components of the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) Command, Control, Battle Management, & Communications (C2BMC) system, modeling the front end of a radar system in a computer simulation, and investigating the feasibility of developing a ground moving target indicator (GMTI) Image Interpretability Rating Scale and an associated Image Quality Equation. Past work encompassed implementation and testing of target detection software for radar and sonar systems such as but not limited to polarimetric, high-range resolution, spatial phase resonance, and fractal techniques. Also, she developed an acoustic target and environment simulation, which was used to test potential detection systems, and analyzed the susceptibility and vulnerability of a weapon system to electronic counter measures.

In 2013, Ms. Gostin was elected to the Board of Governors, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society (CS) for the 2014-2016 term. She currently serves as the Computer Society Representative to the Sensors Council, the Region 3 Awards and Recognitions Chair, on the IEEE USA Awards Committee, and on the MGA Geographic Unit Operations Support Committee. She serves on the Nominations Committee and as the MGAB Vice Chair of Member Engagement for the Computer Society and on the Finance Committee, the Member Society Relations Committee, and the Distinguished Lecturer Program Committee for the Sensors Council. She is the past chair of both the IEEE Atlanta Section and the IEEE Atlanta Computer Society Chapter, and has served as the Section Treasurer, Vice Chair, Student Branch Coordinator, and Membership Development Chair. She was Tutorials Chair for IEEE's SoutheastCon 2009, Administrative Chair for IEEE AESS's RadarCon 2012, and General Chair for the Atlanta IEEE Metro Area Workshop 2013. She also is Project Lead for the Region 3 Volunteer Integration Process project. She is a member of the Computer Society, the Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, and Women in Engineering.

Ms. Gostin was selected as the 2016 Georgia Woman of the Year in Technology (WIT) for the medium business category (251 to 2500) employees. She holds a Master of Science degree in applied mathematics from Georgia Tech, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Greenville College, Greenville, IL."
