Britney Johnson

MIT Department: Media Arts and Sciences
Status: Research Assistant

I was born and raised in a special place called Surry, Virginia. From Hampton University, I’ve earned a B.S. degree in computer science with a minor in leadership studies; and a M.S. degree in computer science from Georgia Tech. My research at the MIT Media Lab involves leveraging the power of one’s social network to mobilize individuals and promote social action. When I’m away from the lab, I enjoy playing basketball, volunteering, and spending time with family/friends. If I could sum up my goals in a few words, I’d say that “I aspire to positively change lives through hope, love, and unity.”
