Congratulations to Steven Ostrowski, the first student liaison to an ASPRS Regional Board

On April 1, 2014 the Eastern Great Lakes Region (EGLR) of ASPRS appointed Steven Ostrowski, a graduate student at The Ohio State University (OSU), as Chairperson for the EGLR Student Advisory Council. The EGLR SAC is also the first of its kind and will serve as a bridge between regional and national student affairs. “As Chairperson, Steven will be the liaison between the EGLR SAC and ASPRS SAC... and to represent all students within EGLR who are current ASPRS Student members or hold an interest in joining ASPRS” (-EGLR Past President Jim Peters, Great Lakes Beacon 2014).

Steven Ostrowski holds a BS in Civil Engineering from OSU and will begin his second year of his MS in Geodetic Engineering, also at The Ohio State University. Last March 2013, Steven won 2nd Place at the OSU Engineering and Architecture Undergraduate Research Forum, with a poster presentation on “Mapping of the Mars Exploration Rovers Opportunity and Spirit, Analyzing Orthophotos and Stereoscopic, Panoramic Imaging”.

Steven works as a graduate research assistant on many exciting projects including the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) and ExoMars with Dr. Rongxing Li (ASPRS Fellow), and UAV/UAS projections with Dr. Charles Toth (ASPRS Vice President). He is enthusiastic about this new opportunity from ASPRS and looks forward to more student involvement from his region.
