By Andra Keay, Hallie Siegel and Sabine Hauert
From Mexican immigrant to MIT, from Girl Power in Latin America to robotics entrepreneurs in Africa and India, the 2019 annual “women in robotics you need to know about” list is here!
Cindy Bethel, Billie J. Ball Endowed Professorship in Engineering Computer Science and Engineering; Director of the Social, Therapeutic and Robotic Systems Lab at CAVS.
We’ve featured 150 women so far, from 2013 to 2018, and this time we’re not stopping at 25. We’re featuring 30 inspiring women in robotics because robotics is growing and there are many new stories to be told, including Cindy Bethel, professor and Billie J. Ball Endowed Professorship in Engineering -- Mississippi State University, professor.
Cindy Bethel’s research at MSU ranges from designing social robots for trauma victims to mobile robots for law enforcement and first responders.
She focuses on human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction and interface design, robotics, affective computing, and cognitive science. Bethel was a N SF Computing Innovation Postdoctoral Research Fellow (CIFellow) at Yale University, the Director of the Social, Therapeutic, and Robotic Systems (STaRS) Lab, and is the 2019 U.S.-Australian Fulbright Senior Scholar at the University of Technology, Sydney.
