Anthonia Carter is a PhD candidate in Information Science at Cornell University. Her research investigates the underlying mechanisms driving resource/capital allocation decisions to design effective and equitable interventions for increasing funding to historically resource-constrained communities. Her work investigates the behaviors, processes, systems, and cultures shaping the flow of venture funding. Anthonia was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a Master's degree in Multidisciplinary Innovation at Northumbria University in the United Kingdom. There, she used a design-led approach to help enterprises realize innovation opportunities. Before studying at Northumbria, Anthonia graduated with dual (Bachelor's and Master's) degrees in Mathematics and a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in Art Studio from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
