Rollins researchers have received one of IBM's Climate Change and Environmental grants, which provide technology resources to assist research on climate change and environmental issues. Drs. Howard Chang and Yang Liu, associate professors of biostatistics and environmental health, respectively, were selected from a pool of more than 70 applicants for their project aimed at examining the impact of climate change on temperature and air pollution on human health at the local level.

Through the grant, the researchers will receive one or more of IBM's technology resources, which include supercomputing power through the World Community Grid, weather data from the Weather Company, or data storage from IBM Cloud. In return for IBM's support, the researchers will publicly release their data, enabling the global community to benefit from their findings.
