Section Welcomes Eduardo Audiche

I have been working as an IEEE volunteer since I was a student and I really enjoy being part of an organisation which its core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. However, the main reason I really enjoy being a volunteer, is because thanks to IEEE, in every step of my career I have made great friends and grow my professional network around the world.
