- Custodianship in the Urban Commons: BARI has worked closely with the Mayor’s Office of New urban Mechanics and the 311 system examine how Bostonians contribute to the maintenance of the public spaces and infrastructure of neighborhoods—that is, custodianship in the urban commons.
- Pursuing Equity in Boston Public Schools: In 2014 the Boston Public Schools (BPS) implemented a new school choice and assignment system that they have since sought to evaluate in collaboration with faculty from four local universities.
- Segregation and Urban Mobility: BARI researchers are analyzing everyday mobility patterns in the 50 U.S. largest cities and their commuting zones based on over 650 million geo-tagged micro-messages from Twitter collected over an 18-month period. A key paper describing these results is available from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS, 2018).
