Anthony Townsend

Anthony Townsend, Senior Research Scientist at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation, will focus on the way new data are being used in academic research to decipher how cities work and how these new discoveries will be applied in local government. He will explore frameworks for engaging citizen scientists more deeply in these efforts to encourage less technocratic styles of data-driven research and governance.
