Dan Calacci

PhD Candidate

Dan is a PhD student at the MIT Media Lab interested in using technology to measure and shape our cities. His most recent work involves using large-scale mobility datasets collected from mobile devices to measure segregation in cities at the level of places and venues. He is also a co-founder of Riff Learning, a company that measures how people interact in groups to help them become better communicators and team members. These days he is thinking critically about how algorithms impact our lived experiences, and how large-scale data should be regulated and used in civic contexts.
