Kate Nicholson has worked in a range of industries, including video production, corporate sustainability strategy, urban design, and interactive media. She recently played a key role in organizing The Feast, a social innovation conference that invites thought leaders from across disciplines to propose solutions to today’s toughest societal challenges. Kate grew up in New York City and is fascinated by the challenge of creating and maintaining healthy urban communities. She’s particularly interested in using big data to do so. Outside of school and work, Kate can be found downtown on a soccer field, scrambling over mountaintops upstate, or massaging kale salads in her kitchen while pondering the barriers to a more perfect food system. She’s thrilled to share the lenses of her DSI cohort and harness the synergy to restore a better balance to the world.
