Karleigh is a 2016 at MIT majoring in Comparative Media Studies and studying as much Philosophy as she can. She currently works as an undergraduate researcher in the Creative Communities Initiative group where she studies online fandom and fan behavior, particularly those related to television​. She is also super curious about the way that derivative and transformative works fit into fan culture.   

Karleigh is the Editor for the Arts section of the MIT Tech and especially enjoys writing about independent film. She hopes to make documentaries one day or to pursue a career in journalism. When she isn't scribbling away, Karleigh can be found in the nearest library with her nose in a book or on her couch scrolling endlessly through Tumblr with her cat, PopTart
