Researcher and AI4ALL Alum
Kasar Profit is a first-year student at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, currently pursuing a major in physics and astronomy, and a minor in computer science. An AI4ALL Summer Program alum, he attended Princeton University AI4ALL in 2018. Kasar has done research in the Advanced Science Research Center at the City University of New York. At CUNY, he worked closely with environmental science researchers on a project that used sensors to monitor carbon dioxide levels on campus and in the field. Being from the Bronx in New York City and a minority, Kasar has witnessed firsthand just how limited opportunities in science are for people who look like him. He is interested in learning about how he can make a difference in the world of science, in terms of opportunity and equity. He hopes to accomplish this through educating others and furthering his own scientific education.
