The 50 most influential women in UK IT 2016


9. Hannah Dee, senior lecturer in computer science, Aberystwyth University

Hannah Dee set up the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium, the UK’s main conference for female undergraduates, which she has run for nine years. This brings together women students, senior women in tech, and employers for a one day technical conference: all students get the opportunity to present their own work which makes this a unique opportunity for both networking and recruitment. As well as teaching undergraduates and carrying out research in computer vision, she also works a lot to encourage schoolkids that computing is an interesting and fun thing to do. Locally, she helps run a weekly after-school robotics club, and puts on one-day workshops in robot programming and app development for kids aged 6-16. She is a women in computing activist and has been on the committee of BCSWomen, the Chartered Institute for IT’s group for women, for nearly 10 years.
