Hello, I’m Karina.

I’m a student industrial designer at the University of Houston (c/o 2022). I am interested in design thinking and systems thinking.

Concurrent with my studies, I currently work at Moku, a lifestyle brand led by an industrial designer who teaches me to have a keen eye for aesthetics and sustainability. I design jewelry, conduct materials research, and design store displays. After four years of volunteer teaching, I am currently preparing to working part-time to teach high school students a STEAM (STEM+Art) virtual learning class elective. I am also an avid researcher with experience in Human Computer Interaction and Design History and Theory. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing with pugs, painting, or reading Plato.
