CRA-W — the Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research — has named UW CSE Ph.D. alum A.J. Bernheim Brush, a researcher at Microsoft Research, as one of two recipients of the 2010 Borg Early Career Award. A.J. studies human-computer interaction with a focus on computer supported collaborative work (CSCW) and ubiquitous computing. She enjoys investigating how technology can help people and families with everyday challenges including coordination, awareness, and energy conservation.
The award honors the late Anita Borg, who was an early member of CRA-W and an inspiration for her commitment in increasing the participation of women in computing research.
