Poverty, Environment, and Neglected Tropical Diseases in Senegal: A Computational Sustainability Study

Kamwoo Lee PhD candidate in Systems and Information Engineering

This project aims to map NTD distribution in Senegal and West African countries through satellite remote sensing so that we can identify vulnerable populations both regionally and socially. This research proposes a method that combines two engineering techniques ― machine learning and simulation. I believe this method is an effective and efficient way to tackle the biggest obstacles to reaching the goal – lack of data and complexity of the diseases.
