Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Texas, El Paso
Dr. Ceberio is a professor of Computer Science at the University of Texas at El Paso. She joined UTEP in 2003 after obtaining her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Nantes, France (2003). Her research revolves around reliable decision-making under uncertainty, optimization, and solving large dynamical systems with uncertainty. Her passion lies in developing reliable tools to generate reliable information about otherwise uncertain situations and to reliably propose courses of actions to counter possible adversarial outcomes of unfolding events. She has applied her work to areas such as network security, bio-medical engineering, mechanical and software engineering.
She is passionate about teaching and mentoring students to success. She has worked on developing and redesigning curriculum for computer science (intro classes, discrete structures, and problem solving courses). She is a fierce advocate of her students’ success and seizes every opportunity to provide advice and mentoring.
Her other passion is in broadening participation in Computer Science. She hosts young women high-school students as summer research interns in her research lab to introduce them to computing. She founded the ACM-W student chapter at UTEP in 2012 and advised it until 2018. From 2011 to 2018, she coordinated the El Paso Annual NCWIT Aspirations in Computing competition and, since 2018, she has led a Google-funded program at UTEP that aims to introduce undergraduate women to research in computing. She participated in the 2018 Faculty in Residence program at Google, was a mentor for the 2019 cohort, and is now leading a virtual cohort.
