Paige Brown and Kevin Roig, both LSU graduate students, have joined the LSU College of Engineering  Dean’s Office for the fall semester. Brown and Roig will both work to support the objectives of the College’s five-year strategic plan.

Brown, originally from Indiana, came to LSU to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in biological and agricultural engineering. Brown was an integral part of the LSU Swimming and Diving team as an undergraduate. She also received a Master in Biological and Agricultural Engineering degree in 2010. After a year in the biomedical engineering doctorate program at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., she decided her passion was scientific writing. Brown plans to apply to the Manship School of Mass Communication’s doctorate program later this year.

Brown will serve as the communications intern for the CoE Communications Department. In her role, Brown will help with the implementation of communication efforts and public relations initiatives plus website maintenance of content and visual aspect on the College website. She will also research and write feature stories and media releases to help increase the College’s visibility locally, nationally and internationally.

Originally from Covington, Roig moved to Baton Rouge in 2004 to begin his college career. Although he considers Baton Rouge home, Roig has lived in Venezuela, Bolivia and the Czech Republic during the 2006, 2009 and 2010 summers, respectively. He graduated from LSU with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree and is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree, concentrating in public administration. Since 2009, Roig has been active in the Collegiate Ministry for The Chapel on Campus, including overseeing a team of collegians who participate in cross-cultural tutoring and mentoring programs for underprivileged elementary students in East Baton Rouge.

Roig will work as the graduate assistant for the CoE Corporate Relations and Economic Development.

He will assist the Director of Corporate Relations and Economic Development in identifying and strategically promoting the CoE to a variety of constituents. Roig will also be responsible for researching the needs of companies for which the CoE could provide technical and research expertise, providing students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the industry.
