Emily Withrow is editor of the Quartz Bot Studio, where she writes, designs, and builds conversational news experiences. Her work examines how people and bots interact, and how journalists might reach new audiences and deliver news and information with these emerging platforms. She taught at Northwestern University for six years, most recently embedded with the Knight Lab. Before that, she worked for The A.V. Club and McKinsey & Company. Withrow spends much of her free time talking with robots, rock climbing, and researching recipes she will eventually abandon for nachos.
