Cindy Rubio González: Promoted to Associate Professor

The Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspectives on Science (CAMPOS) and the Vice Chancellor’s office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would like to extend an enthusiastic “Congratulations!” to Dr. Cindy Rubio González for her promotion to Associate Professor effective July 1, 2020.

It was just last month that we shared her appointment as Faculty Assistant to the Dean for Diversity and Inclusion in the College of Engineering.

Dr. Rubio is currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science. Her work spans the areas of Programming Languages and Software Engineering, with a focus on program analysis for automated bug finding and program optimization. She is particularly interested in the reliability and performance of systems software and scientific applications. Her research aims to design and build tools to help developers write more reliable and efficient software. For her doctoral dissertation, she designed and applied static program analyses to find error-propagation bugs in large software systems.

Dr. Rubio is a recipient of a DOE Early Career Award 2019, NSF CAREER award 2018, a Hellman Fellowship 2017, and is a member of the inaugural cohort of CAMPOS Scholars in 2014. She received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2012, her M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and her B.S. in Computer Engineering from Saltillo Institute of Technology (Mexico). She also holds a B.M. in Piano Performance from the Autonomous University of Coahuila (Mexico).
