Congratulations to undergraduate students Kurt O'Hearn and Christine Sauer (Economics) and graduate assistant Yuki Kutsumi for participating in the Data for Development (D4D) Challenge. Kurt and Christine presented a research poster of the work, “Applying Mobile Datasets in Computational Public Health Research,” at the NetMob 2013 conference held at MIT in Cambridge, MA. The research involved data analysis of large proprietary phone records to aid in developing effective new public health policies for Ivory Coast, Africa. This collaborative work included Drs. Jonathan Leidig and Jerry Scripps.
