COVID-19 Open Data Project

Collaborated with Google on the COVID-19 Open Data Repository. The project was one of the most comprehensive collections of up-to-date COVID-19 related data. It tracked sub-national cases and vaccine deployment data for 20,000+ distinct locations in 190+ countries. The work was used by the WHO, World Bank, IMF, Harvard Research, USAID, and Verily to name a few.
