The Tapia Conference brings together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to celebrate the diversity that exists in computing; connect with others with common backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and gender so as to create communities that extend beyond the conference; obtain advice from and make contacts with computing leaders in academia and industry; be inspired by great presentations and conversations with leaders with common backgrounds.
The I School Admissions team will be available during the conference at Booth #616 to share more information about the I School's graduate programs. Assistant Adjunct Professor Michael Rivera will be joining us on Thursday from 11:00am - 6:00pm.
Assistant Adjunct Professor Michael Rivera teaches Research Design and Applications for Data and Analysis (W201). His research interests include immigration policy, political representation, race & ethnic politics, and American voter behavior. He is especially interested in how campaigns and non-partisan groups can use data science to increase turnout among minority and low propensity voters.
We'll be offering application fee waivers to those of you who stop by our booth!
