Hi, I'm Kaiya Soorholtz.

I'm a researcher at the Center for Media Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin, working under Dr. Samuel Woolley and Dr. Jo Lukito.

I am a founding member of the Media & Democracy Data Cooperative where I serve as the lead data engineer.

My research interests center on computational propaganda, digital privacy, and security. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of business, technology, and society.

I received my MBA from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin and my BS in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University.
