Virginia Grande (they/them) is a PhD student in computing education. Their research is focused on role models in computing: how and what we model, who and for whom, and why, using theory from ethics and identity research. This has lead to a framework to discuss role modeling particularly from the teacher's perspective. See publications at their Google Scholar.

Virginia has also been an active volunteer for the ACM Council on Women in Computing (ACM-W) since 2014 serving in different roles.

PhD studies in Computing Education, under the supervision of Mats Daniels (main supervisor) from Uppsala University (UU), Anne-Kathrin Peters (from KTH) and Anders Berglund (UU). I am part of the Uppsala Computing Education Research Group (UpCERG). I am also one of the PhD students in UpRiSE, the Uppsala Research School in Subject Education.

My research is focused on role models. This involves work such as analyzing the experiences of teachers in computing as role models for their students, of students reflecting on themselves as role models for others in the course, and generally on people in computing who may be emulated by others. I am developing a framework as a way of thinking of role modeling from the role model's perspective, based on who is part of this phenomenon, what can be modeled and how, and why. I approach these questions with others using theories from ethics and identity research.
