This lecture will explore how a unique perspective on economic inequality using a drone is vitally important to combat what has been described as "the defining challenge of our time.”

Economic inequality throughout the world, and especially in developing countries, is oftentimes hidden behind walls or tucked away into forgotten corners of the city. This lecture will explain the process through which I brought this hidden inequality into the spotlight and by making it relevant and unavoidable, helped contribute to a greater understanding of what inequality looks like, how to explain it, and hopefully spark the desire to try and fix it.
