Cara is currently pursuing a dual degree in Computer Science, Philosophy, and Business Management at UBC. She recently completed an eight-month co-op placement as a full-stack developer for the Vancouver-based start-up Thoughtexchange. Here, she had the opportunity to learn about web development and data visualization. However, she also saw first-hand how technology could foster communication and understanding between diverse groups of people. During her time at the CDM, Cara is looking forward to learning more about the way that people interact with technology and how this influences the way people communicate with each other and the world around them.
