Morgan G. Ames started her academic career in computer science with a personal interest in human-computer interactions and now describes her research as being:
…at the crossroads of science and technology studies, anthropology, and human-computer interaction. I draw on a diverse skill-set in my research, from an understanding of computer science systems and theory to a sociological perspective on everyday life. My recent investigations particularly utilize ethnographic research methods, bringing a deep qualitative and critical perspective to human-computer interaction debates about the ways in which we make sense of the technologies in our everyday lives.

October 14th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas”. We will also be referencing women from history that have made impacts in science and math. Please promote and share #ALD14 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
