Deborah Tatar is Associate Professor of Computer Science and, by courtesy, Psychology, and a Member of the Program for Women and Gender Studies at Virginia Tech. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford in 1998 and spent two years as a post-doctoral fellow in the Departments of Communication and at CSLI, before taking the position
of Cognitive Scientist in the Center for Technology and Learning at SRI International. Prior to obtaining her doctorate, she was a Member of the Research Staff at Xerox PARC and a Senior Software Engineer at DEC. She got her start in Computer Science at the Logo Lab at MIT. Her
BA was in English and American Literature and Language, from Harvard.
In addition to trying to reconcile the diverse worlds of psychology, ethnomethodology and epidemiological thinking into the design of interactive systems, she is also busy trying to integrate computational thinking into middle school curriculum!
