Public Health

Our work in health has mostly focused on developing preventative tools for adverse public health outcomes. Over the last few years, we’ve worked with several government agencies and non-profits on problems ranging from maternal mortality (Government of Mexico), adverse births (Illinois Department of Human Services), home visitation programs for pregnant women (Nurse Family Partnership), preventing lead poisoning (with Chicago Department of Public Health), and increasing retention for HIV patients (with UChicago and Chicago Department of Public Health).

A large focus of our work in health has been improving outcomes for communities that are underserved and vulnerable. We are determined to design data-driven strategies to identify individuals at risk of various adverse health outcomes and inform preventative interventions based on individual, demographic, behavioral, social and physical environmental factors.
