We are pumped to announce that Dr. Antonette Logar, a professor of computer science at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, will join us for Morning Fill Up this Thursday, October 27 at 7am at The Garage. Tickets are now available here.
In a conversation with Matt Ehlman of The Numad Group, we'll talk to Toni about innovation in the city and its place in the future of our community. She'll also give us at a sneak peek at the ICPC World Finals, the “Olympics” of computer science, that are coming to Rapid City in May 2017.
Toni has an eclectic educational background. She has a BA in Geology from Lehigh University, a BS in Computer Science from SDSM&T, an MS in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota, a PhD in Computer Science from Texas Tech, and a Law degree from the University of Louisville. She has been a member of the SDSM&T faculty since 1983. Earlier this month, she received the McDonald Medal, the national mentoring award from Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society.
She is a member of SPACT, the security research group at SDSM&T, and has an interest in the programs and infrastructure that foster innovation. She has been a coach for the SDSM&T Programming Team for over 25 years and is currently serving on the board of ECP, the non-profit organization that is bringing the ICPC World Finals to Rapid City.
