Technology Review has named computer scientist Miriah Meyer to this year’s “TR35,” the magazine’s annual list of the world’s top young innovators under age 35. Meyer earned her University of Utah doctorate in computer science in 2008, and then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University until returning this year to Utah as an assistant professor of computer science, a member of the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute and faculty member with USTAR, the Utah Science, Technology and Research initiative. Meyer’s research involves designing software to help scientists visualize large amounts of different kinds of complex data so they can make sense of it and gain insight from it. Technology Review is profiling Meyer and this year’s other TR35 honorees in its September/October issue. Jason Pontin, the publisher and editor-in-chief, says Meyer and others named to the TR35 are “driving the next wave of transformative technology and making an impact on the way we live, work and interact.”
