Tejinder Judge, a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Computer Science, was recently invited to be a speaker at the 6th annual CRA-W Grad Cohort held in San Mateo, CA. She is one of the eight student speakers invited to present at this workshop. This year, the workshop hosted 225 graduate students.

The CRA-W Grad Cohort program, funded by Microsoft and Google, aims to increase female graduate students in computing by building and mentoring communities of women during their graduate studies. At the Grad Cohort Workshop, graduate students in their first, second, or third year of graduate school, are given the opportunity meet with senior computing researchers and professionals who share information, insights, and their experiences about a career in computer science. Through this workshop, students will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks to help throughout their graduate careers.

Tejinder previously attended the Grad Cohort in 2007 and 2008. She is currently in her third year of the doctorate program and works in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. Her research advisor is Dr. Scott McCrickard.
