Dr. Towal will share her journey to become a nationally recognized engineer and scientist. Over the last ten years, she has worked in government labs, universities, research institutes, and industry. In her own words:

My time spent working across biology, electrical engineering, and computer science has allowed me to work with a multitude of scientist and engineering teams diverse in size, discipline, ethnicity, and creativity. I've built robots, studied how rats use whiskers to sense their environment, modeled the human visual system, and developed industry-leading applications of biologically inspired computation.
At every step of the way, I've gotten to work with outstanding mentors and colleagues. In this talk I will share my experiences, as well as concrete data and first-hand observations of how working within the STEM environment is evolving and improving for women.
