Tanya Shreedhar in L’Oréal-UNESCO Rising Talent Award Shortlist
Dr Tanya Shreedhar among the 12 finalists for L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK and Ireland Rising Talents Awards 2023.
Congratulations to Dr Tanya Shreedhar, a postdoctoral researcher in Mahesh Marina’s Networked Systems Group, who made it to the final stages of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science (UK and Ireland) Rising Talents Awards.
“It was my honor to be one of 12 shortlistees out of 180+ applicants for the prestigious L'oReal UNESCO Women in Science UK and Ireland Rising Talent Award. I was the only finalist from computer science. It was my privilege to interact with my fellow finalists from different STEM fields and be celebrated at the Royal Society and the House of Commons in London. Programs such as these shine a well-deserved light on excellent research spearheaded by women in male-dominated STEM fields and can act as crucial motivators for more women to pursue research. I am incredibly thankful to L'OReal UNESCO for providing me with such a fantastic opportunity.”
Tanya’s research interests lie broadly in the area of networks and systems. She received her PhD from IIIT-Delhi, India and her bachelor’s degree in engineering with a gold medal from Panjab University, India. She is active in student and women mentorship programs in several technical venues and has been awarded research fellowship grants from TCS, NSF, ACM SIGCOMM, and IEEE INFOCOM during her PhD.
