FOCUS
Humanitarian organizations have problems in their distribution of aid that need critical attention from researchers and practitioners interested in health policy research. Gabe’s research is invested in improving the communication between humanitarian organizations and those who receive humanitarian aid (migrants, refugees, and asylees). Improving communication means improving aid which can improve their survivability. So far, his research has looked at how to improve maps for migrants in need of water, interfaces for translation apps, and the process of locating water stations for migrants in need of water.
