Maggie Church’s seven years at MIT have been spent at the Media Lab, initially as an administrative assistant for several professors. For the last three years, she has served as the program coordinator for the City Science team. With a bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University in fiber, textile and weaving arts, Maggie previously worked in galleries and museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, and Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island.
