She’s in her final year of Bachelor of Computer Science at the University of New Brunswick and this summer will be conducting research in Data Analytics and Big Data Lab at UNB.
“Much like my interest in politics, a large part of my interest in tech has to do with disrupting the status quo, in whatever ways I can, to make the field more welcoming to women and gender minorities,” said the university student. “The journey to gender parity can feel long and grueling but I hope that the work of EV in New Brunswick can make the road easier for women trying to get to elected office.”
