Jakita O. Thomas, Ph.D.: Expert on Diversity & Inclusion in Tech & eSports

I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

I am currently an endowed professor of Computer Science & Software Engineering at Auburn University. My published research focuses on increasing the sustained participation of girls and women of color in computing.

Prior to becoming a professor I worked for 6 years at a large research lab in Silicon Valley, so I have first-hand professional experience about what that is like as a woman of color. I am an entrepreneur who has a company focused on increasing diversity and inclusion in eSports (competitive video gaming).
