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 did my PhD at UNU-MERIT (Maastricht University), Maastricht, The Netherlands. My doctoral advisors were Bart Verspagen (UNU-MERIT), Neil Foster-McGregor (UNU-MERIT) and Cesar Hidalgo at the Collective Learning group at the MIT Media Lab (now at the University of Toulouse). 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 (BA/MA program) .
