The Office of the Vice President for Research is hosting a three-part series on the resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions.  

Are you interested in improving long-term resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions using Covid-19 as the foundation? Do you want to learn about the diversity of campus perspectives exploring this problem and identify ways of connecting research activities more broadly? If so, join us for a three-part series highlighting multiple angles of inquiry in response to resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions.

This first session will focus on understanding, predicting, and planning for resilience based around the question, "How do we integrate environmental, epidemiologic, economic and societal dynamics into planning, prediction and preparedness frameworks?" Panelists include:

  • Environmental Modeling: Greg Carmichael (Professor, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering)
  • Epidemiologic Modeling: Daniel Sewell (Assistant Professor, Biostatistics)
  • Mobility Patterns: Xun Zhou (Assistant Professor, Business Analytics)
  • Social Vulnerability Modeling: Eric Tate (Associate Professor, Geographical and Sustainability Sciences)
