Policies for the COVID-19 pandemic response have relied upon models of various types to project future trends and assess the potential impacts of alternative amelioration strategies. I invite you to join us for basic overviews of the process of modeling, the “art” of model construction, and the array of different kinds of approaches (mathematical, computational, and graphical) that are applied in the life sciences. The presentation is designed for a general audience without modeling background.
Dr. Louis Gross is an applied mathematician whose research over forty years has focused on modeling and computational methods in many areas of ecology, including disease ecology, landscape ecology, spatial control for natural resource management, photosynthetic dynamics, climate change and the development of quantitative curricula for life science undergraduates. In addition to directing NIMBioS, he directs The UTK Institute for Environmental Modeling, which provides advice on chemical and radiological risk assessment.
