We're a dedicated team of talented individuals.

Each team of Rhodes Scholars consists of approximately 50% technical (e.g. DPhil/MSc students in AI, Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics) and 50% non-technical consultants or domain experts. For example, a team working on a public health project may have an epidemiologist, a junior doctor, and a public policy student.

Engineers tackle the technical side of projects by coding machine learning (ML)-powered solutions to challenging problems using large-scale data.
