Kamilah started programming for a robotics class in high school. After double majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she went on to purse a PhD in Robotics there. At Wolfram Research she connected Mathematica to Robotic kits and now at LinkedIn works on the Mobile Core team where she has helped build key features such as Mobile Registration. Kamilah is driven by thinking about her end goals and the great rush from building and shipping products which people will find useful. Her advice to wogrammers: “Understand what Software Engineering is about. It’s not a lonely career, it’s a very collaborative career where you get to build cool things.”
