Epidemiological models for Ebola exploring different dynamics

December 11, 2019 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

In today’s environment of universal connection and media updates, we are constantly informed about infectious diseases and the ramifications. We can combat infectious diseases using mathematics to gain insight into diseases dynamics and outbreaks. I will focus primarily on Ebola Virus Disease, exploring different models focused on capturing various dynamics.
First, I will present a model whose goal is to illustrate role of education in limiting a potential future Ebola outbreaks in Sudan using data and modeling. Then, I will introduce a model which captures superspreader dynamics and compare the model for Ebola and Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). In addition to these models I will explain about how I became interested in Mathematical Epidemiology and some of the great programs which have led to my research collaborations.
