Diane Kelly

Diane Kelly studies the design and use of computer technology, specifically the interfaces between people and computers. She graduated from Rutgers University and the University of Alabama and was the recipient of the Karen Sparck-Jones Award in 2012.  She said “My slogan is: ‘Computing is too important to be left to men. I think women bring a different perspective to computing; they are more thoughtful and less inclined to go straight for technical fixes. My belief is that, intellectually, computer science is fascinating – you’re trying to make things that don’t exist.”
