Margarida Jacome passed away on the morning of Friday, May 25th, having battled against cancer for several months. We are all deeply shocked at her passing on but we are left with fond memories of her presence, character, hard work, and technical prowess - she was loved by everyone who came across her.
The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering at both The University of Texas at Austin and at Carnegie Mellon are creating a joint Graduate Student Fellowship in her name. Margarida's passion was for her research and for her students and it would seem very appropriate that we should do this.
If you would like to make a donation to this Fellowship, please send your contribution made out to The University of Texas and marked For Margarida to:
