Chiara Amisola

Yale undergraduate and social activist Chiara Amisola, a first-year student who plans to major in computer science, is the winner of the 2018 Student of Vision Abie Award.

The award will be presented as part of the 2018 Grace Hopper Celebration, held Sept. 26-28 in Houston, Texas. Hopper, who received her master’s degree (1930) and Ph.D. (1934) in mathematics from Yale, was a computer pioneer and naval officer.

The Student of Vision Abie Award honors young women dedicated to creating a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for which they build.
