His fascination with data and its immense potential application for advancing local medical research will take him to Harvard, a private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the United States of America, where he will pursue postdoctoral studies in biomedical informatics. That preoccupation with data was what led Dr. Elombe Calvert to pursue a master’s degree in applied data science at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona.

At age 26, Calvert is a graduate of the UWI with a medical degree with honours and works there as a senior medical officer. However, there is a restlessness that continues to drive the youngster from Westmoreland who obtained a combined total of 22 distinctions at the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate levels.
