Cornell University Has Hired Three Women to Its Computer Science Faculty

The Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York has announced the hiring of 11 new faculty members. Three of the new faculty members are women.

Tanya Goyal will be a new assistant professor of computer science for the fall 2024 semester. She is currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Language and Intelligence Initiative at Princeton University. Dr. Goyal’s research interests are in natural language processing, where she works on measuring and improving the generation capabilities of language models. She received her Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Texas at Austin.

Kristina Monakhova was named an assistant professor of computer science. She will begin teaching next fall. Dr. Monakhova currently is a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her research is focused on the next generation of smart, computational imagers for scientific discovery, robotics, and medical diagnostics. Dr. Monakhova holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.

Jennifer Sun was hired as an assistant professor of computer science. She too, will begin teaching at Cornell in the fall of 2024. She is particularly interested in computer vision and machine learning methods that can be integrated into real-world workflows involving expert-in-the-loop interactions, such as the study of behavioral or medical data. Sun is finishing her Ph.D. in computing and mathematical sciences at the California Institute of Technology and is a research scientist at Google.
