Mus.) and Computer Applications in Music (Honors) & Piano Performance (Major) B.Mus. from McGill University.
In her inaugural AES President’s message, Roginska said: “It is an honour and a privilege to begin my term as President of the Audio Engineering Society – the world’s leading society of audio professionals, creative artists, scientists, educators and students.
“One of my goals in 2020 is to build membership and continue to recognise that we are a diverse community of members – whether you are a student just exploring the world of audio, a young professional entering the workforce and growing in experience, in mid-career maintaining your skills while learning new ones in our rapidly changing industry, or a seasoned professional who wants to give back to the community as a mentor.”
