Tawanna Dillahunt
University of Michigan

I completed my Ph.D. at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University under the advisement of Dr. Jennifer Mankoff. I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University and started my career as a software engineer with Intel Corporation. I developed desktop and network products for Original Equipment Manufacturers. While at Intel, I received a Masters of Science in Computer Science from the Oregon Graduate Institute at the Oregon Health and Science University before leaving to pursue my Ph.D. I was a recipient of the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship (2011, 2012), the Fran Allen IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Award (2011), and served on the program committee for FLAIRS in 2011. I hold three patents with IBM Research.
