In more than 20 years working on wireless sensors and radio frequency identification (RFID), MIT research scientist Richard Fletcher has produced several start-ups and over a dozen patents. He directs the Mobile Technology Group at MIT D-Lab, which develops a variety of mobile sensors, analytic tools, and diagnostic algorithms to study problems in global health and behaviour medicine. Utilizing mobile technologies – which include smartphones, wearable sensors, and the so-called internet of things – his group applies these technologies to real-world social problems with global implications. These issues involve a variety of areas, such as environmental monitoring and air pollution, agriculture, farming, and global health.
