Kat Huang 🤷🏻‍♀️

Hey, I'm Kat! I create projects with code, writing & design and study at MIT. I strive to live with intention & act with compassion.

🤷 What I do

I’m majoring in Urban Planning with Computer Science & minoring in Comparative Media Studies. On campus, I dance, (try to) sing, & fry eggs at midnight with my friends.

This summer, I’m doing a technical marketing internship at Gatsby from my hometown of Lowell, MA. I’m also doing a retreat at the Recurse Center sometime this year.

My career goal is to be retired, but until then, I hope to tinker with & write about new media tools (data stories, VR, Internet) and how they reflect & shape society. Talk to me about interactive journalism, Actually Good edtech, & thoughtful uses of technology to aid in solving civic & societal issues :)

🦕 What I’ve done before

Spring ’20: At the Senseable City Lab, I made a website to visualize air pollution data collected by sensors installed on garbage trucks and taxis.

Summer ’19: I interned in San Francisco at Repl.it, an online coding platform supporting 50+ programming languages & a community of 2 million makers.

During high school, I organized hackathons, attempted bioinformatics research, and earned NCWIT’s National Aspirations in Computing Award. I founded Science and Us to introduce teens to the careers and anti-disciplinary mindset of science communication.

When I was 11, I loved Percy Jackson so much I ended up self-studying Modern Greek for 3 years, running a linguistics Tumblr, and teaching myself Latin.
