Virginia (Ginnie) Lo, associate professor in Computer and Information Science, in collaboration with her sister, has published her first children's book, Mahjong All Day Long.
Ginnie wrote the story from childhood memories of her extended Chinese family's never-ending mahjong sessions. Her sister, Beth Lo, a ceramics arts professor at the University of Montana, illustrated the story using underglazes and stains on handmade porcelain plates. They both continue to play mahjong whenever they can.

Ginnie specializes in parallel, distributed, and peer-to-peer computing. Her work explores ways to harness the computational power of hundreds to thousands of computers working together to solve problems. See Prof. Lo's web site for more about her research and teaching at the University of Oregon.
