ABOUT Simprints

The Project: Biometrics for Vaccine Delivery by Simprints

The Big Picture:
1.1 billion people around the world do not have official identification documents. That makes it hard for them to access medical care – like life-saving vaccines and other vital services. Simprints is determined that no one should slip through the cracks – and their biometrics system, which can ensure verified vaccine delivery, was created to make sure no one does. In the current health climate, their mission is critically relevant, which is why Alexandra and her team are the winners of the MIT Solve Health Security & Pandemics Challenge.

I’m a scientist, a researcher, but above all, a builder. I want to build technology that works for the poor, not in 20 to 30 years, but right now.
