IPRI Team

To help bridge the large gap between technical and policy communities, we utilize a fully interdisciplinary research approach that pulls together expertise from across MIT and beyond. The IPRI team is led by faculty researchers from engineering, social science, and management labs at MIT and is located at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL).
