E-ellow Submarine

The E-ellow Submarine is the name of the team behind the Interdisciplinary Convergence Initiative dedicated to exploiting the data generated during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The name originates from our earliest Zoom meetings, where everyone was forced into one online room, speaking different languages and from different perspectives. This "e-submarine" of thinkers and experts is leading a novel initiative to navigate the COVID-19 crisis. We are hopeful that this approach will lead to revised guidelines to better manage and prepare for future major health crises.
