Congratulations to Ph.D. students Zainab Agha and Afsaneh Razi on receiving scholarships to attend the Virtual Grace Hopper Celebration 2020. Committed to supporting the advancement of women in computing, the STIR Lab wishes the best for Zainab and Afsaneh as they plan to attend GHC along with thousands of other scholars from around the world.
“We are honored to have been selected as the Grace Hopper Student Scholars for 2020. As scholars for the world’s largest conference for women in tech, we are excited to learn from the experiences and career trajectory of women across a diverse array of roles in technology. GHC will allow us to build a network and connect with fellow women working in my field of Human Computer Interaction and Computer Science. We hope to pass on the inspiration and knowledge gained from GHC 20 with our fellows at STIR lab and UCF, and share the opportunities presented to us.”
