Rane Johnson from Microsoft Research and Lucy Sanders from National Center for Women & Information Technology chair this session at Faculty Summit 2012.
Microsoft Research has recognized innovative, promising new faculty members from a number of research institutions as Microsoft Research Faculty Fellows. More than 40 academic researchers whose exceptional talent for research and innovation identifies them as emerging leaders in their fields have joined the ranks of Faculty Fellows. The selected professors are exploring cutting-edge, high-impact research that has the potential to help solve some of today’s most challenging societal problems.
In this session, three of the women Faculty Fellows discuss what they are doing to change computer science research and inspire the next generation of computer scientists. Hear how their universities helped them become successful and what more is needed to grow the next generation of women to become emerging leaders in computer science. Learn about possible keys to success and what all professors, researchers, and deans in computer science can do to help women become successful computer science faculty and researchers.
