NYU Tandon and Global Public Health Researcher Receives Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Explorations Grant

Rumi Chunara, assistant professor of computer science and engineering and global public health at New York University, has won a Grand Challenges Explorations grant—an initiative funded by the Bill &

Vaccination coverage in many low and middle-income countries is poor due to a variety of factors, including limited resources, residents living in rural areas, and a lack of public awareness and knowledge about vaccination.

Recognizing the promise that mobile tools hold for improving vaccination coverage, Chunara’s collaborators in Pakistan—led by Umar Saif, UNESCO Chair for Information and Communication Technology for Development—equipped roughly 3,800 outreach and clinic-based vaccinators with a smartphone application called e-vaccs to help health authorities track vaccination progress across Pakistan’s Punjab province.

Using data on disease incidence, the researchers will predict and provide feedback on where the best places and times are to deliver vaccinations to minimize disease incidence while accounting for environmental and social variables such as climate and population density.

Based on data and feedback from the vaccinators to date, the efforts will also aim to identify locations where further attention is necessary, and how best to reach them—for instance, locations where vaccinators are being deployed but vaccination coverage is not improving at an expected rate, or marginalized populations that currently aren’t getting vaccinations.

A January 2014 merger created a comprehensive school of education and research in engineering and applied sciences, rooted in a tradition of invention and entrepreneurship and dedicated to furthering technology in service to society.
