INTERNET OF NATURE | URBAN ECOLOGY | SMART CITIES | URBAN AI | SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Can nature and technology—long viewed as opposing forces—work together to stabilize our climate, sustain our urban environments, and benefit our health? Dr. Nadina Galle is an ecological engineer, technologist, TEDx & keynote speaker, TV presenter, and podcaster—on a mission to find out. She coined her concept "Internet of Nature" (IoN) in her Ph.D. dissertation and now brings emerging technologies to market that are restorative of nature, rather than exploitative. Nadina is a former Fulbright Scholar at MIT Senseable City Lab, where she holds a research affiliation. Her work has been in documentaries by BBC Earth and arte.tv; on British, Irish, and Dutch radio shows; and in print including Newsweek, ELLE, and NatGeo. Forbes and Elsevier have selected her for their “30 under 30” lists.
