My name is Karen Magid. I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, and while I set out to get the most, different science degrees possible and follow the clearest career trajectory possible, I ended up with a PhD in Materials Science (UC-Berkeley), and a couple of other degrees in Electrical and Nuclear Engineering. I moved from California to Switzerland for a postdoctorate (ETH-Zürich). After that, I moved to Mexico for Peace Corps service, in the Technology Transfer program. Now I’m in Austin, Texas. I’m the Sustainability Coordinator for Huston-Tillotson University and I manage the Dumpster Project. My real professional title is Doctora Basura.
