Hi! My name is Kara. I'm currently a data scientist at the Pandemic Tracking Collective, advising the Rockefeller Foundation's Pandemic Prevention Institute, and an MS in Symbolic Systems at Stanford University, where I'm supported by a Knight-Hennessy scholarship. I graduated with a BA in Computer Science and English from Columbia University in 2019, and an MPhil in Philosophy from Trinity College Dublin in 2020 supported by a George J. Mitchell Scholarship. From 2020-2021, I was data quality lead for The COVID Tracking Project, researching problems with US jurisdictional COVID-19 surveillance data.
it's me ^
