CRA-W is pleased to announce Nadia Heninger is the recipient of the 2019 Borg Early Career Award (BECA).
The Borg Early Career Award honors the late Anita Borg, who was an early member of CRA-W, and is inspired by her commitment to increasing the participation of women in computing research. The annual award is given to a woman in computer science and/or engineering who has made significant research contributions and who has contributed to her profession, especially in the outreach to women.
Nadia received her Ph.D. from Princeton University in May 2011. She began her academic career at the University of Pennsylvania and is now at UC San Diego. Her research is in cryptography and systems security. Her outreach includes working with girl scouts, being a speaker at the 2016 Grace Hopper Conference, participating in and helping organize GREPSEC, an NSF workshop for women and under-represented groups interested in computer security research, and organizing research sessions in workshops for undergraduate women in cybersecurity.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a nomination for this year and we hope to see many more in the next cycle.
