Who We Are

In 2018, a team of researchers came together to answer simple but challenging questions:
what do surveillance data look like? And even if you *could* open up a smartphone to look at surveillance data,

what would you find?
 

The result is ADITLOM: a team of experts that come from many different walks of the academy
(from sociology, political science, and business to computer engineering and analytics development)

to build the tools needed to answer these questions.
