Laina had always been bookish, but with her head in the clouds, she never excelled in school and wasn't on a fast track to a good university - she was just quiet and alone. In her final year of grammar school, she was voted most likely to become a librarian somewhere un-notable.
The Fog built connections in Laina's brain that had never existed before, granting her an intuitive understanding of natural phenomenon that she sees and reads about. Laina can read book about neuroscience, make wild leaps of logic on topics that were glossed over and develop a working hypothesis on neurology on par with world leaders in the field.
The only thing she doesn't get, is other people...
Laina understands things almost instantly and has perfect recall of her life experiences. As she expands her experiences, her ability to make predictive leaps increases exponentially.
Laina gets machines on a very basic level and when combined with her intuitive logic, can rapidly iterate and improve existing machines or create her own amalgamations and inventions that take technology dozens, if not hundreds of years into the future.
