Redistricting Lab

Our Mission

The MGGG Redistricting Lab is a research group at Tisch College of Tufts University that grew out of an informal research collective called the Metric Geometry and Gerrymandering Group. The Lab is led by PI Moon Duchin. Our staff has expertise and interests spanning mathematics (geometry, topology, discrete math, dynamics), algorithms, software development, geography, STS, and policy. We research data science interventions for civil rights.

Our goals are these:


The MGGG Redistricting Lab is a nonpartisan research organization. MGGG has major support from the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University and the Amar G. Bose Research Grant Program at MIT and an active partnership with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
