About Katherine

Katherine Gibson received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania, where her research focused on security, with an emphasis on thwarting computer facial biometrics recognition through the use of disguise.  Katherine is a proud graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and its Center for Women in Information Technology.  As a senior at UMBC, she was the lead TA for Intro to Computer Science, and it was there she first discovered her love of teaching.  Her passions include bringing more women into STEM fields through outreach to middle and high school girls, and supporting college women studying STEM subjects through mentoring and inclusive support programs.
