Congratulations to Horacio Larreguy and Jeremy Bowles whose project Countering COVID-19 Misinformation Via WhatsApp in Zimbabwe (together with Kevin Croke, John Marshall and Shelly Liu), as well as Gary King’s Ensuring privacy in COVID-19 epidemiological mobility data sets (together with Salil Vadhan, Satchit Balsari, Caroline Buckee and Merce Crosas) were among the four winners who got funded by the Harvard Data Science Initiative through the Research Fund for Trust in Science. You can learn more about the project on the website.
This year, the department of Government awarded PhDs to an extraordinary group of 18 scholars. They have made original contributions to knowledge and shown the creativity, skill, and perseverance necessary to earn a PhD from Harvard. As Gary King reminds us – most people can never say this, it is an amazing accomplishment. Please join us in congratulating them.
