Karina Nguyen

I am an applied artist and a researcher focused on computer vision, human rights, and human-computer interaction. I am currently an undergraduate at University of California, Berkeley studying data science, sustainable design, and public policy (formerly architecture major).

My practice involves building tools, conducting visual forensics in contexts of war crimes and crimes against humanity both for jounalistic stories and litigation, working with GIS and satellite imagery analysis, visualizing and mapping critical data, experimenting with computer vision methods for visual reconstructions, creating art projects, and more. Currently contributing to the New York Times publishing tools design team and leading investigative cases at Human Rights Center. I am also researching at Brian Barsky's Computer Vision Research, and Clancy Willmot's Cartography Lab. I am a Northern Viet, who was born and raised in Eastern Ukraine.
