Encouraging Diversity

  • Designed and guided the implementation of Kinection – an application that allows users to paint (Jackson Pollock-style) by using gesture-detection software implemented through Microsoft Kinect. The objective of the application is to make science and art interesting to middle- and high-school students. The application was used as an interactive exhibit at the Sheldon Museum – a nationally accredited museum in Nebraska (June 2012), where it was very popular with youth and children. Since then, our department has showcased the application during recruitment activities. It has also been presented at the MINK WIC (Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas Women In Computing) event held in Kansas City (2013), at the UNL Middle School College Access outreach program (2014), and at the TEDxYouth program geared towards high school students in Lincoln. The application has also been requested to be showcased at the Walton School Art Show in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
  • As part of the BRAID (Building Recruiting And Inclusion for Diversity) program, a consortium of fifteen universities to increase diversity in Computer Science, I am in charge of guiding a group of fifteen CS students to attend the Grace Hopper Conference, October 2014.
  • Visited middle schools in Lincoln area as part of NCWIT (National Center for Women in Information Technology) GEM (Girl Empowerment and Mentoring) program to encourage middle school students to pursue careers in computer science, February 2012.
  • Judged essays as part of NCWIT GEM program, where middle school students are paired with undergraduate students who mentor the (middle school) students in writing essays on a technology related topic and the winner is provided a scholarship for attending the CSE department – March 2011, 2012.
  • Participated in MINK – WIC (Minnesota, Indiana, Nebraska, Kansas – Women in Computing) career fair, Kansas City, MI, October 2011.
  • Participated in “Ask a Scientist Night” to encourage middle school students to pursue careers in computer science at Irvine, October 2006, 2007.
  • Invited talk at Brea Olinda High School to encourage high-school students to pursue career in computer science at Brea, CA, USA, February 2006.
