Join us at the new Dr. Phillips Academic Commons for a discussion on Smart Cities with distinguished lecturer, David Gilford.

David Gilford advises public and private sector clients on the use of technology to make cities more livable, sustainable, and responsive. As a Principal with HR&A Advisors, David is developing strategies in support of economic development and inclusive innovation for clients including New York City, the City of Pittsburgh, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. David previously co-founded and led the Connected Communities practice at Intersection, an urban technology and media company backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs, where he focused on real estate, airports, and neighborhood development. David has led the creation of digital master plans for over 40mm square feet of mixed-use developments, including Orlando’s Lake Nona Town Center, using technology to unlock new sources of revenue, reduce costs, and improve quality of life. He has been recognized nationally among the 40 Under 40 Rising Stars in Economic Development, as well as one of New York State's Top Ten Energy Government Leaders.
