Additionally, Jaime has explored personal information management, editing a book and organizing a series of workshops on the topic.

Jaime is passionate about mentoring young researchers and encouraging women to pursue computer science careers. She works with a number of graduate students, talks regularly on topics related togender and family, and publishes a popular web series on academic writing. As a mother to four young children, Jaime is particularly interested in helping researchers integrate parenthood with their academic pursuits. She has written several articles about conference travel with children, and worked with conference organizational committees to implement better support for attendees with families.
