The next installment of the Mason Vision Series will be held from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 30, and feature Dr. Louise Shelley, the Omer L. and Nancy Hirst Endowed Chair and a University Professor, who will address How the Smart Use of Data Is Being Used to Fight Transnational Crime.
In her presentation, Dr. Shelley will describe new visionary research conducted within the Mason’s Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center where sophisticated use of data is providing key insights into critical problems of corruption, terrorism, illicit trade, and transnational crime. She will also describe her National Science Foundation funded team’s prize-winning basic research using advanced data analytics, which has contributed to the seizure worldwide of over 55 million counterfeit and substandard medical masks that would have otherwise endangered medical care providers.
The Mason Vision Series will be live streamed through GMU-TV. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion by submitting questions via email (GMUProv@gmu.edu) or Twitter by using #VisionSeriesMason. To RSVP, click here.
