Bryan Grenfell, "Spatio-temporal dynamics of childhood infectious disease: predictability and the impact of vaccination."

October 17, 2016 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
LKSC 120

Free and open to the public.

Bryan Grenfell is the Kathryn Briger and Sarah Fenton Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Public at Princeton University. He is a population biologist, working at the interface between theoretical models and empirical data. He is particularly interested in:Investigating how the interaction of noise and non-linear density-dependent feedback drive population processes at different scales; understanding the spatio-temporal dynamics of infectious disease and how these are affected by control strategies; and exploring how pathogen phylogenies are affected by host immunity, transmission bottlenecks and epidemic dynamics — at scales from individual host to population.
