Hi! My name is Kara, and I am a senior at Columbia studying English and Computer Science, passionate about the philosophy of artificial intelligence.
At Columbia, I am a reporter and editor for The Eye Magazine of the Columbia Daily Spectator (my most recent project is The Ear Podcast—subscribe!) and a proud senior advisor for Lean In at Columbia (previously co-president). Over my summers in college, I've interned at Google and YouTube and worked as a research assistant in the Columbia Speech Lab. In my free time, I can be found working my way through the cover story of a six month old New Yorker, listening to the entirety of This American Life's archive, and developing barely-competencies in assorted hobbies (most recently knitting, and only knitting, definitely not purling).
This website houses some examples of my writing and coding.
