  • A Framework for Integrating Multiple Data Sources for Modeling and Forecasting of Infectious Diseases


    Principal Investigator: Elaine Nsoesie, Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle


    This investigator is developing a data mining/informatics framework that leverages the huge amount of digital event-based data sources in combination with climate data, and data from traditional disease surveillance systems for modeling and forecasting infectious diseases.

  • Data Integration for Global Population Health Through Dynamic Models

    Willem Gijsbert

    Principal Investigator: Willem Gijsbert "Wilbert" Van Panhuis, M.D., Ph.D., University of Pittsburgh


    This investigator is working on the new methods for integrating public health data for disease surveillance with an emphasis on dengue and Chikungunya.

  • Individual Fellowship - F31 Investigator

  • Application of Branching Processes to Measles in California


    Principal Investigator: Sarah Ackley, University of California at San Francisco


    Through this F31 fellowship, this student is training in infectious disease epidemiology and statistical modeling and research that focuses on possible viral strain differences in measles outbreaks.
