Genevieve Bell ’90, an anthropologist who serves as director of user experience for Intel Corporation’s Digital Home Group, has gathered some impressive laurels lately.

An Intel Fellow who has profoundly influenced the company’s understanding of cultural factors in the use of technology, Bell was recognized by Fast Company’s Web site in January as one of the most influential women in technology, and this spring, the magazine included her in its list of the 100 most creative people in business. The site’s online profile of Bell includes several video clips of Bell’s presentations on the intersections of technology and culture.

Bell is now concluding a yearlong term as an Adelaide Thinker in Residence, one of “two or three world-class thinkers” invited to Adelaide, Australia, each year by the premier of South Australia to “assist South Australia to build on its climate of creativity, innovation and excellence.” “The Thinkers,” says the program’s Web site, “provide the State with strategies for future development in the arts and sciences, social policy, environmental sustainability and economic development.”
