Passion for technology: Three UH women honored

HOUSTON, June 22, 2005 Repairing aneurysm-damaged arteries, analyzing computer code patterns and improving hardware imaging techniques recently earned three University of Houston women top honors from the Association for Women in Computing (AWC).

At the annual AWC gala, Mathematics Professor Suncica Canic received one of the "Top Houston Women in Technology" awards for 2005, and two UH students were each awarded a $10,000 Kathi Bowles Scholarship. Intended to promote advanced education in the field of science and technology, the scholarships were given to Irene Cooperstein Cole, a math and computer science senior in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Barbara Nishae Brooks, a technology leadership and supervision junior in the College of Technology.

Canic was selected as an honoree for her significant career achievements and leadership roles in Houston's technology and computing arenas. Joining the UH faculty in 1998, Canic has been working on research to improve stents to treat arteries damaged by aneurysm. She is involved in collaborations with researchers from the Texas Medical Center and uses complex mathematical models to improve stent design.

"Sunny Canic is a talented mathematician, scientist and educator, and her research is aimed at solving some very important problems related to the treatment of cardiovascular disease," said John Bear, dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. "I was delighted to be on hand at the event to see UH do so well with these prestigious honors bestowed at both the faculty and student levels."

For exhibiting exemplary performance in their fields of study, Cole and Brooks each were awarded a Kathi Bowles Scholarship, established in 1988 to honor the memory of one of the AWC Houston Chapter member
