 Karly Kandel

Design & User Testing Co-Team Lead
My name is Karly Kandel. I am a senior from Kendallville, Indiana studying Informatics with a cognate in graphic design and a minor in human-centered computing. In my free time I like to indulge in my love for watching Netflix, eating food, reading, and painting. Apart from this I work for the Robot House here on campus. I’m currently working on a study that focuses on teaching coding and robotics in a classroom setting, which I’m always happy to talk about! This will be my second semester being in ServeIT and my first semester being a team lead. I can’t wait to explore the concepts of design and user testing with my team!

Hi! My name is Maritza Castaneda and I am a senior majoring in Informatics with minors in Human-Centered Computing and Public and Environmental Affairs. In my spare time I really enjoy cooking, going on runs, sketching and painting. This is my third semester being involved in the Serve IT Clinic, and my first time being a team lead. I am excited to work with the other interns this semester as well as the client teams on design methods. I hope we will be able to help improve technical experiences and learn from our projects this semester!

Hi guys! My name is Bailey Ippolito and I’m from Greenwood, Indiana. I’m a junior studying Informatics with a cognate in Business and minors in Marketing and Creative Technologies in Art and Design, and this is my first semester with Serve IT.

Hello! My name is Devanshi Ruparel. I’m from Mumbai, India and coming to Bloomington has been the best experience so far! I’m studying Marketing and Business Analytics at Kelley while also minoring in Mathematics. Besides academics, I love playing and watching tennis (big Nadal fan!), going on hikes and also filming and editing videos. This is my first semester with ServeIT and I’m very excited to explore Graphic Design and User Testing!

Kaylandra Barnes

Design & User Testing Intern
Hey! My name is Kayla, and I’m currently a junior studying Informatics with a cognate in human-centred computing and a minor in Information Technology. I’d describe myself as a fairly laid back person. That being said, in my spare time, you can usually find me reading, drawing, painting, writing, napping, listening to music, or hanging out with friends; however a good majority of my time is split up between work and school. Overall, I’m incredibly excited to be apart of ServeIT this year because I think it will be a great first step into the UI/UX field. Hopefully, over the course of this semester, my colleagues and I can gain a more in-depth understanding of design as a whole while also gaining experience in hands-on, client-based work. In addition, I hope to diversify my portfolio and grow as an individual for I continually strive to shape myself into a positive asset for any technology company.

Robert Tuori Greene

Design & User Testing Intern
Hey! My name is Robert Greene and I am currently a Sophomore studying Informatics and minoring in Music and Spanish. I haven’t decided what my cognate will be yet, but I am interested in the cybersecurity so that might end up being what I do. I am from Fort Wayne, Indiana, which is about a three hour drive from Bloomington. Aside from ServeIT, I am involved in WIUX, the student run radio station in town, and also play music around town as a part of the band Secret Mezzanine (check us out on Spotify if you are a fan of rock/alternative music!). I love to stay active and cook for friends, and I really enjoy graphic design even though I am not that great at it.
