Aleksandra (Seša) Slavkovic was born and raised in Čačak, Serbia, where she enjoyed mathematics but also sports, music, and dance. In fact, while a student at Duquesne University, she was supported by the Tamburitzan Scholarship and performed with this unique and culturally diverse performance ensemble. Slavkovic met Steve Fienberg, who recruited her to the doctoral program in statistics, while she was pursuing a master’s in human-computer interaction at Carnegie Mellon. She is now professor of statistics and associate dean for graduate education at the Penn State Eberly College of Science.
