She participated in the founding of the Unicode Consortium and served on the US Technical Advisory Committee that contributed to Unicode becoming an international character set standard now used globally. Before working with the RLG Partnership, Karen spent nine years in East Asia, primarily in Japan and Taiwan. She holds a degree in Chinese Studies from Yale University) {}
