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.
