About Me

I’m Kimberly Do, a PhD student in computer science advised by Professor Saiph Savage in the CivicAI Lab at Northeastern University. My research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI) and social computing.

I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

Outreach and Service

I organize opportunities for students to gain the skills and autonomy to ideate and innovate.

At Georgia Tech, I was the Director of Design of HexLabs 501c(3) and organized 1,000+ person “hackathon” events like HackGT, Catalyst, and Prototypical. I was also a Design Bootcamp Instructor at Bits of Good and a Peer Instructor at the HIVE Makerspace.

  1. I instructed users how to safely use tools like soldering irons and laser cutters as a PI at the Hive Makerspace.
  2. I led a team of eleven designers to ideate and design the theming and branding of HexLabs events, like HackGT.
  3. I instructed twelve students in a self-made user experience research curriculum at Bits of Good’s Designer Bootcamp.
