12.1 A focus on infectious disease modelling

Modelling Infectious Disease

Joel Miller is a mathematician who models infectious disease. He has worked at various public institutions and advises policymakers regarding the management of infectious diseases. Watch an interview with Joel to learn how the spread of infectious disease is modelled and the difficulty in incorporating human behaviour into models. (Especially when predictions made by the models affect human behaviour!) You will also learn some tips on how to apply your skills in mathematics to real-world problems.
