We are pleased to welcome Dr. Constantine Kontokosta to the faculty of the Marron Institute. Professor Kontokosta’s Civic Analytics Program will work with cities to acquire and analyze data that can inform solutions to significant problems of urban policy and planning. Among his program's ongoing projects are an effort to estimate bias in citizen complaint data, a collaborative project to model urban carbon emissions, and an effort to use large-scale locational data to develop a real-time census of the city.
