I'm Sarah Michael Levine. 

By day, I do empirical research at Stanford Law School. By night, I get mappy.

I'm focused on the intersection of law, policy, planning, and technology. At work, I research topics in labor economics and workers' rights in high-hazard industries.

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 dream of bridging the gap between empiricists, policy people, and media, and making lots of maps along the way.
