This projects combines traditional survey data with satellite derived atmospheric data to shed light on,and seek solutions to, the environmental burdens facing the world's poorest people.
This project uses recent advances in remote sensing and computer vision to develop an alternative approach to obtaining useful data for urban researchers and policy makers.
Using mobile phone data from Colombia, this project explores the relationship between social networks, socioeconomic class, and residential mobility.
