This position is with the University of Nottingham School of Mathematical Sciences. The work extends novel advances in mathematical sciences to identify, measure and rectify previously intractable humanitarian abuses related to Rights of Women (SDG5, 3.1, 5.3). Developments of predictive mathematical models are applied to novel data sources (digital health data; drone/earth observation imagery; mobile-money; cell network data; crowd-sourced event reporting) through partnerships with in-country academics, government, private-sector partners and NGOS. The work aims to directly feed into interventions in Tanzania, East Africa – a country where women continue to suffer from pernicious inequality, leading to horrendous and sustained humanitarian abuses: widespread Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Forced Marriage and continued unacceptable rates of Perinatal Mortality.
