Tahiya Chowdhury selected to attend CRA-WP Committee on Widening Participation

Tahiya Chowdhury has been selected to attend the Computing Research Association Committee on Widening Participation workshop to be held on April 16-18 in New Orleans. Tahiya will participate in the Grad Cohort for Women workshop. CRA will fully support travel and related expenses.

At the Grad Cohort for Women, attendees will spend two days interacting with about 20 senior female computing-related researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. By attending Grad Cohort attendees will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate career and beyond.

Tahiya is a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Jorge Ortiz and a member of Cyber Physical Intelligence Lab. Her current research focuses on time series segmentation and change point detection using unsupervised learning for limited training data scenarios. She received an MS in Computer Engineering from Rutgers University and a BS in Electrical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

Tahiya served as President of the Society of Women Engineers Rutgers Graduate Chapter in 2018 and was a Rutgers Predoctoral Leadership Fellow in 2018-2019. Her long term research goal is to build intelligent tools to facilitate smarter and reliable interaction between human and machine predictions.
