The IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) board of governors awarded The Alton B. Zerby and Carl T. Koerner Outstanding Student Award to Emily Hernandez, EE’16, of the IEEE-HKN Gamma Theta Chapter at Missouri S&T.

At S&T, Hernandez was active in Eta Kappa Nu, the Robotics Design Team and the Missouri S&T Chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. She held a research position in the Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory and was an Opportunities for Undergraduate Research Experience Fellow in the Applied Computational Intelligence Laboratory.

Hernandez’s paper “Graphical Trust Models for Agent-Based Systems” is pending publication in IEEE Potentials Magazine, and “High Speed Serial Link Challenges using Multi-level Signaling,” which she co-authored, was accepted for the Electrical Performance of Electronic Packaging and Systems (EPEPS) Conference in October 2015.

Hernandez is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in electrical engineering at Stanford University.
