The 2016 Grace Series Talks Closes with Dr. Rym Zalila-Wenkstern
Last semester, the Grace Series finished its fall 2016 series of talks with UT Dallas’ very own, Dr. Rym Zalila-Wenkstern, Associate Professor of Computer Science at UT Dallas and Director of both the Executive Master’s of Software Engineering Program and the Multi-Agent and Visualization Systems Lab at UT Dallas. On November 29th, Dr. Zalila-Wenkstern closed out the fall run of the Grace Series as the 9th woman featured, with her talk titled, “Marrying CS and Living ‘Happily Ever After’ in Academia – Everything You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask.” Dr. Wenkstern has twice been the recipient of UT Dallas’ Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science Teaching Excellence Award.
