Princeton University President Shirley M. Tilghman, a distinguished molecular biologist, discusses the role of women in science -- past, present and future.
Responding to the need for more women in theoretical computer science, Princeton hosted a Women in Theory workshop in 2008. The workshop was coordinated by Tal Rabin, a cryptographer at IBM Research, and computer science professors Boaz Barak and Moses Charikar.
The Alfred Sloan Foundation has chosen Boaz Barak, an assistant professor of computer science, to receive a Sloan Research Fellowship. The selective grants are awarded "to enhance the careers of the very best young faculty members in science."
