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.
