Computing for Sustainability and Equality

With talent and opportunities comes responsibility. We believe that computing for sustainability and equality to be two essential goals to improve our world. We are committed to fostering a culture of acceptance and diversity regardless of gender, race, religion, status or socio-economic background. Much of our research focuses on using computer, data and math skills to improve equality and driving sustainable solutions for difficult challenges. We work in food security, empowering women in STEM, essential resource management for water, data mapping for global warming, pandemics, and mental health, and digital technologies for health – to name but a few.
