Jerin Amin

(Alumn)

Tool Validation RA

Jerin is a third year majoring in Chemistry at the University of Chicago. She is excited to work as a part of the Miie Lab team and explore the presentation of different races and genders in children’s books. She is also looking forward to learning more web management skills as well as seeing how large pools of data are managed and used. She was born in Bangladesh and moved to America at the age of 5. As a child she loved to read books, especially those with magical elements. At a young age she noticed that the characters in her stories often did not look like her and that affected her perception of herself. As she became older, she was more excited to see her background represented in stories. Outside of work Jerin enjoys drawing and listening to music.
