IDE Seminar Dr Mortiz Kraemer

Digital and molecular epidemiology of emerging infectious diseases

COVID-19 has exposed critical gaps in surveillance and modelling of infectious diseases as well as their translation into policy. I will present research at the intersection of digital tools measuring human behaviours and how they can be used to improve assessments of infectious disease spread. When paired with evolutionary dynamics of COVID-19 and other emerging pathogens they improve estimates of origin, geographic spread, and speed of dispersal of infectious pathogens.
