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 graduate degree in journalism to top off her bachelor's degree in computer science & engineering. She has, since, 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 cat-and-dog person. She strongly believes that hyphenation can solve most problems.
