Biobot is a spin-off of a research collaboration between the MIT Senseable City Lab & Alm Lab, where Ghaeli and her team developed methods to extract population health indicators from wastewater.

An architect by training, Ghaeli has collaborated on work with the United Nations Climate Change Summit, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of Cities.
