Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 12:45pm

Two EECS faculty members and a historic alumna are included in a new micro-documentary series, "Storied Women of MIT."

MIT Video Productions (MVP) created the series to spotlight remarkable women from MIT’s past and present, releasing the 60-second videos throughout March 2017 to mark Women's History Month. Among those featured in the series were:

  • Mildred Dresselhaus, Institute Professor Emerita of Physics and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, widely known as "the queen of carbon science.” (For more on Dresselhaus, who passed away in February 2017 at age 86, see this MIT News tribute.)
  • Dina Katabi SM ’99, PhD ’03, Andrew & Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, a specialist in wireless and mobile networks.
  • Li Fu Lee ’29, the first Chinese woman to attend MIT and among the first women to receive an electrical engineering degree.

You may view the entire series on MIT's Teaching Excellence website or on YouTube.
