Kira is a JD candidate at Harvard Law School and an affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center.
Previously, she was a Senior Project Coordinator at Berkman Klein, where she worked on a variety of topics ranging from government use of algorithmic decision-making to internet access policy. Kira also helped run programs to educate policymakers about emerging technologies by connecting them with experts and practitioners. She remains deeply interested in how governments implement, interact with, and regulate technology, and how decisions in each area impact vulnerable communities and social justice.

She also spent time as member of AARP Massachusetts advocacy and outreach teams. Kira graduated from Tufts University, summa cum laude, in 2013 with a political science degree, for which she wrote a thesis about what voters think when political candidates cry through the lens of gender.
