Ph.D. Student Elizabeth Goodman Awarded Intel Fellowship

I School doctoral student Elizabeth Goodman has been named as a recipient of the 2009–2010 Intel Foundation Ph.D. Fellowship.

The Intel Foundation Ph.D. Fellowship Program awards fellowships to Ph.D. candidates pursuing leading-edge work in fields related to Intel's business and research interests. Fellowships are available at select U.S. universities, by invitation only. The fellowship includes a cash award for tuition, travel expenses, and an additional stipend, an Intel mentor, and the opportunity to participate in an internship at Intel. This is a highly competitive program with approximately 40 fellowships awarded annually.

Goodman's research at the School of Information combines human-computer interaction (HCI) with geography, investigating the design of ubiquitous computing systems for everyday urban places such as cafes and gardens. Currently, she is focusing on how information systems might play a role in the creation and stewardship of urban green spaces for local food production and neighborhood activism.
