The purpose of this website is to document my participation in the Distributed Mentorship Project (DMP) offered by the Computing Research Association's Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W). The purpose of the DMP is to familiarize undergraduate and rising graduate women with research experience similar to that of a computer science or computer engineering graduate program by matching students with professors for a summer of research at the professor's home institution. The DMP is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Use the calendar on the right to link to journal entries for each week of my participation.
