Futurity features research from Md Rafiul Islam, Audrey McCombs and Claus Kadelka


Research from experts in the Department of Statistics and the Department of Mathematics has been featured in the Futurity article “Comparing 17.5 million options shows CDC got COVID vaccine rollout right.”

The article is based on the work of MD Rafiul Islam, a postdoc research associate in the Department of Mathematics; Audrey McCombs, a graduate student in the Department of Statistics and Claus Kadelka, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics.

Their original study “Evaluation of the United States COVID-19 vaccine allocation” was published on PLOS ONE. This work has been covered by several media outlets.
