Introducing the Symposium Speakers: Sarah Williams

Sarah Williams is the Director of the Civic Data Design Lab at MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning. Trained across disciplines as a Geographer, Landscape Architect, and Urban Planner, Williams's work focuses on the intersection between technology and urban planning.

One of her most well-known projects is 'Ghost Cities of China', which uses social media data to understand housing vacancy. Adding to that, Sara William’s work has been widely exhibited in art- and design institutions like the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York City.

It goes without saying that we look forward to hearing Sarah's forward-thinking, transdisciplinary perspective on technology, urban planning, and everything in-between at the symposium in May. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
