We are thrilled to announce that Penn LDI has a newly-redesigned website! Over a year in the making, the new ldi.upenn.edu highlights our dynamic Fellows community, multidisciplinary research, events, and more. With this redesign, our working groups, affiliated centers, and educational programs also have new webpages. We hope you enjoy exploring LDI’s new digital home!
