Sarah Parcak, a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and founder of the Laboratory for Global Observation, won the $1 million TED Prize grant, given annually to “a bold leader with a wish to spark global change.”

Parcak uses infrared imagery from satellites to identify ancient sites for archaeological study. In Egypt, for example, she helped locate 17 potential pyramids, 1,000 forgotten tombs and 3,100 unknown settlements.

On Feb. 16, 2016, at the TED2016 conference, Parcak will share her goal for which the $1 million will be used. Her talk will be livestreamed for free. For more information about the conference and Parcak’s award, click here.
