Jared Bastian – President
Elle Wroblewski – Outreach Director
As Vice-President of Illini Aerospace Outreach I oversee the groups affairs outside of the University. I coordinate with community leaders and organizations, as well as corporate contacts in order to ensure we have the opportunity to participate in meaningful outreach. I am very interested in promoting engineering and sciences as a potential career path for grade school and high school students, specifically to underrepresented populations in STEM fields like female or minority students.
Tyler Yokoo – Secretary
I am a freshman at the University of Illinois in aerospace engineering from Peoria, Illinois. I am an event director for Illini Aerospace Outreach, so I help organize and direct events at Illinois and at local schools. On campus, I am also a member of the University of Illinois chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Space Grant team, and I works on computer vision for an iRobotics project. In my free time, I enjoy playing ice hockey at the University’s ice rink.
I’m a sophomore in Aerospace Engineering and I’m an event director for Illini Aerospace Outreach. I’m super involved in soccer both on and off campus, and I hope to work for a defense contractor once I graduate.
Hadi Chouhdry – Social Director
My name’s Hadi Chouhdry and I’m a sophomore at the University of Illinois, studying Aerospace Engineering. I’m the Social Director at Illini Aerospace Outreach, coordinating and helping plan events geared towards Aerospace Department students and staff. A couple of fun facts about me are that I’m currently working on acquiring my glider soaring license (PPL-G), and I’m fluent in 6 languages!
Catherine Rogers – Public Relations Director
I’m a sophomore in aerospace engineering. I serve as the public relations director for Illini Aerospace Outreach and help plan and execute events, along with the rest of the executive board. I really enjoy working with younger students and getting them interested in STEM. Outside of school, I enjoy playing for the Illini Ridgebacks Quidditch Team.
