A memorable CS graduate

Computer Science graduate Nodira Khoussainova is the co-founder and CEO of Focused, a Silicon Valley startup that helps people accomplish undistracted work for a couple of hours in a study hall-type setting. This isn't that unusual, many of our graduates start companies. I remember her because she graduated in CS, with Honours, when she was just 16 years old! She then went to study for a PhD is in Computer Science at the University of Washington. She was recently interviewed on Radio New Zealand and you can listen to her interview here.
