Networking Networking Women (N²Women) named Prof. Shubham Jain a N2 Women: Rising Star in Computer Networking and Communications. N2Women is a community of researchers that encourages diversity and connects underrepresented women in computer networking. Each year N2 recognizes 10 inspiring women, from teaching professionals to researchers, who contribute time and outstanding effort in computer networking.

An Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science (CS), Jain was nominated by her colleague Prof. Aruna Balasubramnian for her achievements with sensing devices and her involvement as a student mentor. Balasubramanian described Jain as an “expert in designing and using novel sensing techniques for highly creative applications”.

Jain’s recent work involves detection of unvoiced speech using earmounted sensors which is a groundbreaking solution to eavesdropping that improves privacy. The device recognizes jaw movements to safeguard personal information but also allow users to communicate without vocalization.

N2 Rising Stars are those who have less than 10 years of experience after earning their PhD and have outstanding research outcomes and contributions in the networking and communications field. The CS department is proud to have a N²Women Rising Star as part of our faculty.
