Title: Modelling importations of COVID-19
Date: Friday, May 21, 2021
Time: 11:10 am to 11:50 am
The spatial and temporal spread of infectious diseases of humans can be conceptualised as stemming from the repetition of four processes: transport of the disease from a location where it is undergoing amplification, importation into a location, amplification of the disease in that location and exportation from that location. I will present work about the importation of COVID-19.
Julien Arino earned his PhD at INRIA (France’s National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation). He teaches at the University of Manitoba Faculty of Mathematics, where he is a participant in the Data Science NEXUS multidisciplinary program as well as the VADA (Visual and Automated Disease Analytics) graduate studies program. He is particularly interested in the risk of virus importation.
