Illinois Computer Science undergraduate student Drshika Asher, currently a junior, recently earned inclusion to the 2022 class of Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Research Scholars named by the Illinois Scholars Undergraduate Research (ISUR) Program.
The Clare Boothe Luce Program aims to support women undergraduates seeking to study or teach science, mathematics, and/or engineering via the research pathway to graduate studies. Each year eight women undergraduates are selected as Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholars. The scholars become part of the ISUR program and work closely with a faculty sponsor/mentor and graduate student mentor on research projects.
The Clare Boothe Luce Program’s third cohort of recipients includes: Asher (Computer Science), Jasmine Dinari (Nuclear, Plasma, & Radiological Engineering), Maya Grant (Mechanical Engineering), Jiho Kahng (Engineering Physics), Victoria Kindratenko (Bioengineering), Alexa Mitka (Bioengineering), Varshini Murugesh (Bioengineering), and Charmaine Nieves (Mechanical Engineering).
The CBL Research Scholars Program is funded by The Grainger College of Engineering and the Henry Luce Foundation. Congratulations to Asher, whose inclusion included the following bio:

Drshika’s personal experiences have led her to learn more about moderation research in computer science. She began doing research in her first year at UIUC and learned several techniques in artificial intelligence to conduct research in this area. Her second year of doing research was funded by the CS department via the CS STARS program. Since then, she has continued expanding her skills in AI research and presented her work at national conferences. Drshika has also interned at Microsoft Research where she built accessible interactions for multiple devices and AR Avatars. Aside from research, Drshika is a head Course Assistant for Data Structures. She was formerly involved with leadership positions in Reflections | Projections and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Drshika brings new perspectives to the program and progressing the field of computer science. She is a standout for her active commitment to making virtual worlds a safer, accessible space for everyone.
