For the past few years, I have been participating in the Ada Lovelace Day blogging event. This year I would like to talk about Dr. Kyla McMullen.
Dr. McMullen is the University of Michigan’s first African-American female computer science PhD (in 2012.) She is now a professor in the Human-Centered Computing Lab at Clemson University (which also has a lot of amazing women!) Her primary research interests “lie in rendering spatial audio virtually to enhance virtual environments and to sonify information sources.” As a former telecommunications grad, I find this inspiring and awesome. Take some time to visit her page to look at her research and publications and to be as inspired as I am!
