Virtual Tapia Conference 2021
The ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing 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.
Please stop by the virtual career fair on Wednesday and Thursday, September 15 and 16, from 10:30-6pm, and Friday, September 17 from 10:30-2pm (all Pacific Time) for an opportunity to meet Assistant Adjunct Professor Michael Rivera and admissions coordinator, Ruben Rodriguez.
Assistant Adjunct Professor Michael Rivera will be at our booth on Thursday from 11am-12pm and Friday from 12-1pm. Mike 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.
Ruben Rodriguez, our admissions coordinator, looks forward to meeting you during the career fair. Ruben is passionate about helping prospective graduate students navigate the graduate application process. Please bring Ruben any program and admissions-related questions you may have!
