McGill Desautels students Venkatesh Chandra and Ramy Hammam recently developed an analytics-based COVID-19 dashboard to monitor cases across Canada in an effort to combat the spread of panic and misinformation. 

According to Professor Mehmet Gumus, Academic Director of the Master of Management in Analytics program, Chandra and Hammam’s COVID-19 dashboard is a great initiative. “Data analytics can have significant impact on flattening the curve by directing the scarce resources in our healthcare system to the right location at the right time,” says Professor Gumus.
