I'm Sarah Michael Levine. 

By day, I study the law and do empirical research at Yale Law School. By night, I get mappy.

I like maps because they are intrinsically subjective and sentimental. I believe maps can bestow power and agency. Without maps government could not extract taxes, communities could not seek representation, and it would be nearly impossible to answer questions about how the world around us is changing. 

I'm focused on the intersection of law, policy, planning, and technology. I dream of bridging the gap between empiricists, policy people, and media, and making lots of maps along the way.
