Urbanization in South Asia: Conversations from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

Urbanization Seminar

Dr. A Ravindra, Chairman, Institute for Social & Economic Change, Bangalore

Adnan Morshed, Associate Professor at the School of Architecture and Planning, the Catholic University of America 

Mubbashir RizviAssistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Georgetown University

Chair: Sai BalakrishnanAssistant Professor in Urban Planning, Harvard University Graduate School of Design

This panel brings together three urban scholars and practitioners from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and it deals with the contemporary challenges facing rapid urbanization in South Asia. This panel presents a unique opportunity to have a cross-cutting conversation across South Asian countries to both situate their planning experiences in their specific contexts, but to also ask if there are any commonalities about the South Asian urban experience. It is also a chance to learn about design and planning practices from across neighboring boundaries.

Using Cell Phones to Study Behavior: From Individuals to Entire Nations

Webinar

Watch the live stream here.

JP Onnela, Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

Cell phones are no longer just a tool of communication – they are being used to improve the lives of billions of people. As the technology continues to improve, collecting behavioral data is getting easier and less intrusive. Data from cell phones can reveal everything from an individual’s mental health, how pathogens spread, to how social networks function at the societal level. In this session, Professor Onnela will discuss his work on using digital phenotyping to study the behavior of social networks with big data.

8:30 AM in Cambridge, 5:30 PM in Pakistan, 6 PM in India, 6 PM in Sri Lanka, 6:30 PM in Bangladesh, 6:15PM in Nepal
