Modeling and Big Data for Pandemic Response
Years of preparedness and scientific progress have been harshly put at test in the most difficult health crisis of the last 100 years. Following the path of our experience in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in this talk Vittoria Colizza will discuss pitfalls, challenges and opportunities to improve modeling and data analytics for pandemic response.
Colizza has been active in the response against the COVID-19 pandemic, advising French public health agencies, government authorities and international agencies. For her work on the pandemic, in 2020 she received her Knighthood of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic by the Italian President.
This talk will be held in person and via Zoom.
Light refreshments will be served.
