Ateneo Physics alumnus Dr. Ann Margot Aaron in the “Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative-Alumni Forum” last July 2010 in Singapore

Ateneo Physics alumnus Anne Margot Aaron (BS Physics ’98 and BS Computer Engineering ’99) is one of the Philippine alumni in the “Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative-Alumni Forum” held last July 4 to 6 in Singapore. The theme is “Driving Asia to a new paradigm–What is Asia’s role in the global arean” recognizes the emergence of Asia’s new leaders who can work together into the future:

Most have moved on to masteral and doctoral studies. Most are also now making their mark in their selected careers – in government service, corporate world, entrepreneurship, professions, academe, NGOs.

They are Ann Margot Aaron, Marianne Aniceto, Allan Hizon, Rowena Sombrano-Africa; Nikki Briones Carsi Cruz, James Jimenez, Tiffany Liong, Rey Mocorro; Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino 1V, Enrique dela Cruz, Katrina Escay, JP dela Vega; Grant Cheng, Lianne Gervasio, Caniella Tubianosa, Vince Varilla; William Panlilio, Dominic Pascasio, Leslie Tan, Grace Vera Cruz; Eric Ebro, Camille Ng, Philip Ranada, Maida Salcedo; Philip “Boyet” Dy, Marc Gloriani, Pamela Manuel, Carl Ng; John Fajardo, Donald Ngwe, Glenn Tuazon, Wainwright Yu; Raymund Li, Adrian Mundin, Paulo Mutuc, and Nicole Villarojo.

Anne Aaron is finished Magna Cum Laude and University Valedictorian of Ateneo de Manila Batch ’98.  She worked as a Technical staff intern at the Philippine Senate’s Committee on Environment.  She then went to the Manila Observatory’s to work on the lidar project and to the CISCO Systems as Summer Intern.  She finished her M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University last 2001 and 2006 (see her full resume).  Her research is on distributed source coding and its applications. Using Wyner-Ziv coding, she with her group are developing a low-complexity video encoder for wireless cameras and a novel error-resiliency technique for video broadcasting. They are also applying distributed souce coding techniques to compression for large camera arrays and random access of light fields.
