New York City Girls Computer Science and Engineering Conference Fall 2014

NYU’s WinC & Princeton’s GWISE + Google

Every fall NYU hosts high school girls from around New York City to take part in talks about education and careers in computer science. This year I got to present one of the ‘cool talks in CS,’ presenting my research into using 3D models to generate recognizable human facial expressions. It was my second year participating, and has gotten me very interested in the problem of getting more females into STEM fields, particularly computer science.
