I am Research Director in the Technology Horizons Program for the Silicon Valley-based Institute for the Future, and independent research organization. My research focuses on the impact of new technology on cities, infrastructure and public institutions and the role of technology in economic development.
I also hold the post of Senior Research Fellow at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management where I am investigating the impacts of mobile information services and communications on travel behavior and long-term shifts in mobility demands in megacities.
I’ve also been a Fulbright Exchange Scholar at the Seoul Development Institute in South Korea, studying the social impacts of broadband on the Seoul metropolitan region and was one of the original founders of NYCwireless, a pioneer in the municipal wireless movement.
My first book, SMART CITIES: Big Data, Civic Hackers and the Quest for a New Utopia is published by W.W. Norton & Co. More information, including purchasing options, can be found at www.smartcitiesbook.com.
