  • City Science

Andres is a Ph.D. student from Mexico City at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab. He has a background in robotics, AI, and innovation. He is interested in understanding ways in which we can improve how we design, manage, and operate cities. His current work at MIT is focused on the development of community-scale, low-cost, and opportunistic sensor networks and algorithms. These systems aim to empower local communities with better information for resource management and promote larger scale policy changes; enhancing the social and environmental performance of cities.
