Lily Bui holds dual bachelor's degrees in International Studies and Spanish from the University of California Irvine. Before joining MIT CMS, she worked at Public Radio Exchange (PRX), where she helped generate and distribute science public radio; and SciStarter, where she helped find and tell stories about citizen science. In other past lives, she has worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.; served in AmeriCorps in Montgomery County, Maryland; worked for a New York Times bestselling ghostwriter; and performed across the U.S. as a touring musician. At MIT, her masters research focuses on using sensors to support journalistic inquiry and how to communicate sensor-based data to the public. She is also a researcher at WRAP (Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communications), where she has helped evaluate and design MITx online modules for communication in materials science and chemical engineering at the undergraduate level. In her spare time, she builds gadgets and thinks of cheesy puns. Like many graduate students, she is interested in anything and everything.
