Abhishek Bhatia

I’m currently a PhD student at the Carolina Health Informatics Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Research Associate at Crisis Ready. I’m interested in the use of information technology and nontraditional digital data streams (eg: data from social media, search engine, wearable technologies, and broader digital phenotypes) for disaster response and health service delivery.

This website is a repository of my work, along with any personal projects that I dive into in my free time. I’m also trying to write about methods and concepts that fascinate me as I continue to learn, and take more pictures of people, places, and things.
