Anind Dey
We worked together  •  Charles M. Geschke Director of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. Georgia Institute of Technology grad.
I've known Victoria for about 15 years, and have known of her for 20 years. While I have worked with her only in academic capacities - we co ... nducted research together, wrote papers together, and wrote grants together - I can certainly vouch for Victoria's ability to identify a compelling problem, investigate possible solutions, and then push towards a working, exciting solution. It doesn't matter what the problem domain is, Victoria never seems out of her element. She is extremely bright, and knows how to communicate challenging problems to others to get them excited and energized about the problems. She's also a great leader and one you'd be happy to work with.

I worked with him ... on this in the early days and I really appreciated his thoughtfulness, focus and self-deprecating leadership style. Exactly the sort of person Jim Collins is talking about in his book, "Good to Great."
