Professor of Computer Science and Chair of the Computer Science Department

Gloria earned four degrees from Indiana and Purdue Universities.  Her research and teaching interests lie in evolutionary computation (with publications and grant work involving biological applications), robotics, computing ethics and gender issues of computing.  Gloria's concern for the underrepresented in computing led to her founding and continuing to sponsor a DePauw student organization that recruits and retains women in computing (ACM-W).
