Interview with Jeopardy! champion, UNC alum Emma Boettcher


Emma Boettcher was nicknamed the “Giant Killer” by Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek after beating longtime champ James Holzhauer. A lifelong Jeopardy! fan, Boettcher wrote her master’s paper at UNC's School of Information and Library Science using text mining to find out whether the readability of the show’s questions could predict their difficulty levels.
