Hey, I am Karina. I am a designer who is simplifying complexity costs of human-software interfaces and visualizing stories through data and information graphics. I love deepening my mind in finding new ways to uncover truths from investigative research on human rights violations as well as researching ethical implications of human interactions with emerging technologies. I also enjoy learning UI development, identity systems & typography, and machine learning.

My design work contributes to the New York Times, Human Rights Center, and Primer.ai. Previously my work contributed to Square, Dropbox, Hallo, Fireflies.ai, Lovers Magazine, Blueprint, the Daily Californian, The Blum Center for Developing Economies, CITRIS & The Banatao Institute, the UN, and European Youth Parliament. I also work in collaboration with Associated Press and Amnesty International on various projects.

I am a third-year undergraduate studying data science (cognition), public policy, and geospatial information systems at University of California, Berkeley. I am a Northern Viet, who was born and raised in Eastern Ukraine, where I graduated from music school. Email / Github / Twitter / Substack / Linkedin.
