Moa Karolina Carlsson

I am a PhD Candidate in Design and Computation (Minor in STS) at MIT researching intellectual and environmental histories of computer-aided landscape design in Britain (1950-1980). My work is centered on histories and practices of computation, representation, systems thinking and mathematics, which emerged through cross-pollination between military operational research, cartography, landscape architecture and environmental planning.

During the academic year 2016/2017 I was a visiting doctoral student at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science (HPS), University of Cambridge, UK, and a research fellow at the Archives of the Museum of Rural English Life (MERL), in Reading.
