Kathleen E. '22

Biography

Hi, I’m Kathleen! I’m from East Setauket, New York. I’m a freshman interested in too many things, but I’m thinking of settling on Courses 6-3 (computer science) and 9 (brain and cognitive science). I love art, data, and throwing the two together into cool visualizations. I want to quantify life at MIT, maybe in some weird ways.

Before I came to MIT, I spent some time researching how our eyes and brain do the magical thing we call vision. It turns out that there is quite a bit of weird stuff going on. I maintain that we all see the world differently, both in terms of our perspectives and in how our brain executes its series of vision hacks. Here’s my brain’s attempt at processing reality and conveying it to you.
