Katja Schechtner holds a dual appointment with MIT Media Lab and the Asian Development Bank to create and implement large-scale urban mobility and transport technology investment programs and to lead research projects to integrate qualitative parameters into quantitative urban analysis tools.
In 2004 she founded a research group on crowd dynamics and transportation simulation at the Austrian Institute of Technology, which she led until 2012. Katja also serves as a consultant and advisor for several European research institutes and the EU Commission, lectures at universities in the US, Austria and China and has published widely, most recently two books on Urban Data and Accountability Technologies. She has a background in architecture, urban studies, management and technology assessment from Columbia University and Vienna University of Technology.

She also serves as a curator at Ars Electronica, the Technical Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna. Therefore, she travels extensively - and loves it.
