Team

Our Team and Research Network

We are a group of passionate researchers and designers from MIT and Harvard University. 

​​

We work with local community partners, such as Chinatown Progressive Association and the Community Land Trust, and build tools to engage lower-income and aging communities in the urban planning process using digital platforms, which better collects inputs from local residents and visualize challenges and opportunities.
