Kavya Sukumar

Frontend and API engineer


Kavya is an engineer with a journalism habit.

Before switching fields to journalism and adopting developer-journalist as her professional identity, she was an engineer-with-no-hyphenation at Microsoft. She got a masters degree in journalism from Northwestern University to top off her bachelors degree in computer science & engineering from National Institute of Technology, Trichy.

She has worked on both the product and the editorial sides of newsrooms, been an OpenNews fellow, lost more awards than she has won and generally enjoyed all aspects of working in journalism.

She thought she was a dog person and then she met her cat, Jude. Now she is a strongly-cat-leaning-dog-person with two cats and no dogs. She strongly believes that hyphenation can solve most problems.
