Morehouse College Computer Science Pipeline Continues to Grow

The Morehouse College Culturally Relevant Computing Lab sends four graduates to computing PhD programs this August. These students include Robertson Bassy (Auburn University), Jassiem Ifill (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), John Angel (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and Zaire Ali (UNC Charlotte). These four students continue the PhD program pipeline spearheaded by Culturally Relevant Computing Lab Director and Morehouse College Assistant Professor, Kinnis Gosha, PhD. This cohort of students will increase the total number of students from his lab to pursue PhDs to 12 in the last three years. According to the 2014 Taulbee Survey there are only 152 Computer Science PhD students that identify themselves as Black or African American.cv_pic_3-500x300
