Her most recent awards include the Technology, Instruction, Cognition and Learning Early Career Research Award given by the American Education Research Association [1].

Daily has sponsored research projects for educational learning. The project titled Online Application to Support Inquiry-based Science (OASIS) Teaching in High-Density Computing Environments received $749, 510. This research project took place from 2009-2011.[2].

Shaundra Daily also starred the PBS series, The Secret Life Of Scientists And Engineers. She featured in 5 episodes in 2011. The show aims to display the lives of science and engineering professionals outside the workplace [3].


Daily received mentorship from MIT scholar, Rosalind Picard. Piccard was Daily’s advisor during her postgraduate research at MIT. Daily’s career has focused on Electrical and Computer Engineering. In particular, she has worked in the field of Educational Engineering. Since 2001, she has held academic positions in American universities. Presently, Daily is an Associate professor of the practice in the department of electrical and computer engineering at Duke University. From 2009-2011, Daily was senior personnel on the OASIS (Online Application to Support Inquiry-based Science) Teaching in High-Density Computing Environments research project which was sponsored by the United States Department of Education [4]. Daily also worked on Integrating Computing Across the Curriculum (ICAC) and Incorporating Technology into STEM Education Using XO Laptops. This research was sponsored by the National Science Foundation [5]. Daily’s other Engineering contributions are evident in the research project, Virtual Environment Interactions: Exploring Grounded Embodied Pedagogy in Support of Computational Thinking. She held the role of Principal Investigator for this research project. [6] .This project aimed to develop a desktop-based virtual environment
