Kara Schechtman


Hi! My name is Kara, and I am currently an MPhil candidate in Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin, where I am studying on a George J. Mitchell scholarship. I recently graduated from Columbia University with a double major in Computer Science and English. Next year, I will begin an M.S. in Symbolic Systems at Stanford University as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar. I hope to afterwards pursue a doctoral degree in the philosophy of AI.

I am currently Public Relations Officer for Women in Research Ireland. At Columbia, I was an editor for The Eye Magazine of the Columbia Daily Spectator and co-president of Lean In at Columbia. Over my summers, I've interned at Google (on the News Corpus and CloudSearch teams) and YouTube (on the YouTube Mix team), and worked as a research assistant in the Columbia Speech Lab.
