data. We often work with extremely large datasets, composed of billions of
data points. Our analyses enable us to map the distributions, movements and
characteristics of vulnerable populations in low- and middle-income
countries. We help save lives by providing analyses and decision support to
all relevant parties, based on the latest academic advances. Our work
includes both research and operations, aimed towards having a concrete
impact on vulnerable populations.
