Human Mobility Networks and Infectious Disease Epidemics

December 8, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 3 p.m. in the Hill Auditorium of Barrows Hall, Brandon Lieberthal will be speaking in the colloquium for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. His talk will be on “Human mobility networks and infectious disease epidemics”: In a globalized and highly connected world, predicting the trajectory of disease epidemics, whether vector-borne and direct transmitted, must consider environmental and socioeconomic factors in tandem. Lieberthal will discuss his ongoing research into the prediction and detection of superspreaders, based on natural and socioeconomic factors, and how human decision making drives the spread of disease epidemics.
