Press Release 12-140 - Video
Alice Pawley and Jennifer Vaughan work for inclusion of more women in their fields of engineering.

The research and outreach activities of 2011 PECASE recipients Alice Louise Pawley of Purdue University and Jennifer Wortman Vaughan of the University of California, Los Angeles, center around the inclusion of more women in their male-dominated fields of Engineering and Computer Science. More specifically, Pawley, funded by NSF's Directorate for Engineering, received her PECASE "for outstanding research on root causes of under-representation in engineering degree programs, for educational activities and outreach to students and faculty, and for academic leadership to support equality of access to education." Vaughan, funded by NSF's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering, received her PECASE "for ground-breaking research unifying machine learning, algorithmic aspects of economics, and social network theory leading to predictive models of preferences and collective behavior, and for increasing the participation of women in computing and providing service to the machine learning and artificial intelligence research communities."
