December 10 @ 11:30 - 12:30 PST
Dr. (Jade) Benjamin-Chung will present on her research on spillover effects (i.e., herd effects) of infectious disease interventions, including examples focused on diarrhea, soil-transmitted helminth infections, influenza, and malaria. She will highlight data science tools to enhance the practice of epidemiology and to increase reproducibility.
