In this talk from the School of Engineering, Dr. Tahira Reid Smith will describe several research and engineering projects that were largely inspired by observations and personal experiences as a woman and a woman of color. Although engineers are called upon to address numerous problems that are human-centered, there are some problems that are best addressed by members of the population most affected. She will discuss several projects that demonstrate how the intersection of diversity, engineering, and design can help to frame novel problems and identify solutions.
