Jane Margolis is a Senior Researcher at UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. Since 1994 her work has focused on the underrepresentation of females and students of color in computer science education. Margolis is the author of two award-winning books: Unlocking the Clubhouse: Women in Computing (MIT Press, 2002), which examines the gender gap in computer science at the college level; and Stuck in the Shallow End: Education Race, and Computing (MIT Press, 2008), which examines why there is a shamefully low number of African-Americans, Latinos, and females in computer science at the high school level. Margolis is the PI of “Into the Loop Alliance” that created Exploring Computer Science focused on broadening participation in computing and democratizing computer science education.
