Laura Kahn, Graduate Student (Data Science), Indiana University’s School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering
Laura was born in a small town in North Carolina. She went on to earn a B.S. in Textile Engineering and a B.A. in Spanish at North Carolina State University. Laura thought this unique combination of majors would be amazing after attending a summer camp in high school where she played with bouncing polymers. While attending North Carolina State University, she earned a scholarship to study a summer term in Peru, where she fell in love with the Spanish language. Upon graduation, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she served in a variety of digital information roles. After over a decade in public service, she decided to change careers and pursue a Master’s of Data Science from Indiana University’s School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering. Her research includes applied artificial intelligence and has been featured at several conferences. Laura loves traveling, hosting dinner parties, playing saxophone and spending time with her family.
