Prof. Zhou Giving Keynote at 2019 TechWomen Annual Luncheon

In the 2019 TechWomen|TechGirls annual awards luncheon, Prof. Zhou discussed her journey, which transcends student, teacher and professional, from studying computer science in China, to pursuing a PhD and starting a faculty career in the United States. She also discussed her current research in mobile computing, as well as her experience and the lessons she has learned navigating a male-dominated field. The annual event was held from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on Wednesday, April 3 at the Bedford Village Inn, 2 Olde Bedford Way in Bedford.

Now in its fourth year, the TechWomen|TechGirls annual awards luncheon acknowledges the accomplishments of three women who contribute to the furtherance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and/or professional STEM advancements for women throughout New Hampshire. Three women will be celebrated and named as TechStudent of the Year, TechTeacher of the Year and TechProfessional of the Year. Winners are selected through nominations, which are being accepted here and are due by Friday, February 15.

“We’re honored to have Dr. Zhou share her experiences and insights with us,” said Shannon Herrmann, annual luncheon committee chair and senior recruiting manager at Alexander Technology Group. “Her experience and interest in mobile computing and data communication have led to her being honored by many organizations and have helped her become well-regarded by her peers and other industry professionals as a leading researcher and industry expert.”
