About Mary Kaltenberg

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at Brandeis University with Adam Jaffe and Margie Lachman working on the inventor creative life cycle with patent data. I was a PhD Fellow at UNU-MERIT, Maastricht, The Netherlands. My doctoral advisors were Bart Verspagen at UNU-MERIT, Neil Foster-McGregor at UNU-MERIT and Cesar Hidalgo at the Collective Learning group at the MIT Media Lab. In 2016, I was a visiting student and research assistant at the MIT Media Lab.

Previously, I worked at UNICEF on resource mobilization and research on accessibility to health care. I received my masters and bachelors degree in economics from The New School for Social Research in New York City.
