Abstract: This talk will discuss the use of epidemiological modeling to guide operational decisions, particularly when working with heterogeneous surveillance data and complex systems. Examples will be given across a variety of systems, including SARS-CoV-2, West Nile Virus, tick-borne disease, and zoonotic tuberculosis. The focus will be on designing models to address operational, rather than research, questions.
All presentations will be recorded and will available on the CAII website shortly after the presentation.
