My name is Karen and I’m a psycholinguist turned interdisciplinary designer. I’m interested in using interaction design and service design to create experiences that go beyond the digital screen.
I’m currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Carnegie Mellon University School of Design as an AAUW Fellow.
