REYES, Josyl Mariela R.

Josyl Reyes (formerly Josyl Rocamora) received her Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering (BS ECE, Magna Cum Laude) from the University of Santo Tomas (UST), Manila, Philippines in 2011, and her Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MS EE, with Thesis) major in Computer and Communications from the University of the Philippines in 2014. She was chosen as one of the 22 women scientists from Asia and the USA to attend the 2018 Ewha-Luce International Seminar (ELIS) held at Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul, South Korea; and was also the recipient of the 2018 Postgraduate Scholarship from the Hong Kong Association of University Women (HKAUW). Josyl is also a Ph.D. Candidate under the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering (EIE) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and is working on her Ph.D. research on indoor positioning and mobility tracking.
