Dr. Richard Larson

BLOSSOMS
Principal Investigator and Mitsui Professor of Data, Systems, and Society at MIT
Richard Larson is Principal Investigator of the MIT BLOSSOMS Initiative. He is Mitsui Professor (Post-Tenure) of Data, Systems, and Society at MIT. He is also the Founder and former Director of MIT LINC (Learning International Networks Consortium), an MIT-based international project that has held seven international symposia and sponsored a number of initiatives in Africa, China and the Middle East. Professor Larson first became interested in technology-enabled education when in the early 1990’s he saw what a valuable addition it was to the education of his own children. From 1995 to 2002, he served as director of MIT’s Center for Advanced Educational Services (CAES) where he focused on bringing technology-enabled learning to students living on the traditional campus and to those living and working far from the university, often on different continents.  With his student Ms. Yi Xue, he co-authored “STEM crisis or STEM surplus? Yes and yes,” Monthly Labor Review, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, May 2015, given Best-Paper-of-the-Year Award from the Lawrence M. Klein Fund.
