Episode 59: Experiment in Lockdown

In this episode, we once again focus on the Safe Blues project which was created to see in close to real-time how social mobility and epidemic spread interact. 

For the past few months, the Safe Blues team has been conducting an experiment in New Zealand at the University of Auckland City Campus. 

The experiment took a turn, though, when Auckland went into lockdown a few weeks ago. 

We chat with three members of the Safe Blues team to find out more about how the project was progressing and why the lockdown is both an opportunity and a challenge for this experiment.
