BIO :)

——

Hey hey! 👋 I'm Carolyn, an undergraduate @ UC Berkeley (go bears!) double majoring in Computer Science and Statistics with a minor in Politics, Philosophy & Law (PPL).

I'm currently at Brookings AIET (Artificial Intelligence & Emerging Technology Initiative) on a SPIP Fellowship, conducting AI + election research and helping build data science capacities under Valerie Wirtschafter and Derek Belle. I'm also developing tech policy opportunities at the Paragon Policy Fellowship, running the EECS dept-sponsored CS Kickstart program, and teaching Berkeley's CS 61A course at Computer Science Mentors (CSM).

My broad interests lie in AI (particularly NLP), data science, policy, journalism, & education, and I'm currently exploring the intersection of technology and public entrepreneurship. (+1 on the tech for social good space!). You can read more about my personal values here.

In my free time, I write thought pieces on my
medium blog, swim/bike/run on the Cal Triathlon team, and post computational linguistic puzzle + music videos on my hobby channel. I'm also a diehard fan of fantasy romance novels and Disney song hits. In a past life, I was a newspaper Editor-in-Chief, varsity cross country captain + runner, and a pianist, flutist & classical vocalist. I still put on those hats every now and then — especially at public pianos  :)
