Meet Karen Sun, the newest member of our team! She grew up in Holmdel, New Jersey, and attended Holmdel High School. She then attended MIT, where she majored in mathematics and music. Before coming to Quizlet, Karen worked at companies like Bookish and Two Sigma, and consulted for many others. In her spare time, Karen loves reading, sewing, cooking, and weightlifting.

As part of our platform team, Karen will be working on classifying our content and improving our search features — that means finding great study material on Quizlet is about to get even easier. Read on to learn more about Karen:

Quizlet: If you could learn to do anything, what would you learn?

Karen: Dancing or woodworking. I am a little too old and ungraceful to pick up dancing, so I have my sights set on making bookshelves or a nice upholstered chair.

Q: What was your favorite subject in high school?

K: Biology. I had two excellent biology teachers in high school who inspired me to major in Biology and pursue a research track. I was fortunate to attend a high school where we had an after-school research class that was largely biology themed. It was really fun and the highlight of my day.

Q: What was one thing you wish you could have changed about high school?

K: I really wish I had learned more about computers and programming! To that end, I hope code literacy becomes a new standard in the K-12 system because I think it is an essential and empowering skill.

Q: What's the most interesting article, blog or book you've read recently?

K: Gut by Giulia Enders. I read an article about how Giulia had won the Berlin Science Slam and infused excitement into a conventionally dull and distasteful topic. The book did not disappoint.

    Welcome...to...Quizlet....Karen....Suspense!
    Lights, Camera, Action!
    Karen walks onto the scene. She smiles at the camera, and points at a cow grazing in the background. Quizlet asks her questions. She responds. Quizlet posts her interview. Then, Quizlet users begin to comment and high-five. sfonseka begins to write an unnecessary script.
    LOL!
