The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing awards honors young women at the high school level for their computing-related achievements and interests. Recipients are selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and plans for post-secondary. Awardees from NM will be honored at our event!" PLUS, the keynote speaker will be Santa Fe's very own Karen McKinnon!"Karen McKinnon relocated to New Mexico in 2017 from her native Colorado to join Descartes Labs as an Applied Scientist. She received her PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University in 2015; her doctorate research focused on developing novel statistical and physical models for climate variability with applications ranging from extreme events to long-term climate change. After finishing up her degree, she moved back to Colorado by way of New York City to spend two years as an Advanced Study Program post-doctoral fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. When not wrangling data and writing code, Karen can be found going on outdoor adventures throughout the West."
