Dr. Linda M. Ott received her Ph.D. in computer science from Purdue University in 1978. She joined Michigan Tech's faculty shortly after completing her doctorate and chaired the department of computer science from 1996 to 2010. Her research interests are in software engineering, including software processes, software measurement, and software engineering education. She also has interests in ethical and social aspects of computing and has been active in efforts to increase the number of women in computing for many years. She has been a co-PI on nearly $1.5 million in grants from industry and the National Science Foundation. Dr. Ott is a 2010 recipient of the ACM SIGSOFT Retrospective Paper Award for the paper "The Program Dependence Graph in a Software Development Environment," co-authored with Dr. Karl Ottenstein. The paper was published in SDE 1, Proceedings of the First ACM SIGSOFT/SIGPLAN Symposium on Practical Software Development Environments, April 23-25, 1984. In addition to teaching at Michigan Tech, Dr. Ott taught advanced software engineering at Siberian State Aerospace University in Krasnoyarsk, Russia as a Fulbright scholar. She also taught Ethical and Social Aspects of Computing at Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai in Zhuhai, China. Dr. Ott is currently Michigan Tech's lead person in the efforts to increase the number of female undergraduates in computing as a member of NCWIT's Pacesetters program.
