Dartmouth Professor to Speak at TechWomen|TechGirls Awards Luncheon

Dr. Xia Zhou of Dartmouth College, a member of The New England Council, will be the keynote speaker at the TechWomen|TechGirls annual awards luncheon on April 3 in Bedford, NH. As an associate professor of computer science, she co-directs the Dartmouth Networking and Ubiquitous Systems (DartNets) Laboratory and the Dartmouth Reality and Robotics Lab.

Dr. Zhou is known for her research on how mobile computers intersect with other disciplines, as well as how light can be turned into a strong medium for data communication and object sensing. She will bring this experience to the luncheon, which acknowledges the accomplishments of three women each year in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. One woman each is named TechStudent of the Year, TechTeacher of the Year, and TechProfessional of the Year.

Shannon Herrmann, the committee chair of the annual luncheon, said “We’re honored to have Dr. Zhou share her experiences and insights with us. Here experience and interest in mobile computing and data communication have led to her being honored by many organizations and heave helped her become well-regard by her peers and other industry professionals as a leading researcher and industry expert.”

The New England Council commends the achievements of Dr. Zhou and Dartmouth College, as well as the effort to promote more women and girls in the STEM fields.
