Abstract

Harvard University epidemiologist John Brownstein was always interested in health, but rather than heading to medical school, he decided to wed his interests in ecology, statistics, geography and computer science to predict disease dynamics. Brownstein, who is also chief innovation officer at Boston Children's Hospital in Massachusetts, has partnered with Google and Uber to harness new data sources.
