To Friday 27 April 2018 - 05:00pm
It is a pleasure to invite you to the Disease Modelling Workshop 2018 (DMo 2018). This workshop will be organized by the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak from 23rd to 27th April 2018.
This year in its 5th run, DMo2018 workshop will be “problem-driven” whereby the participants will post transmission dynamics problems and at the end of the workshop, participants will gain answers to their problems. We organize it in such a way as it still holds on the original objective of the workshop, which aims to bring together researchers in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Public Health in one platform to share knowledge and current research activities mainly in facilitating the eradication and control of infectious diseases. This Problem-Driven workshop will ensure that the workshop will be more hands-on.
Associate Professor Dr. Jane Labadin, leader in the Computational Epidemiology research cluster, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak where she initiated and has been working on Disease modelling since 2008.
Dr. Cécile Viboud, Senior Research Scientist in the Division of International Epidemiology and Population Studies of the Fogarty International Center, NIH, where she has worked over the past 13 years.
Dr. Marc Choisy, IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) researcher at MIVEGEC Laboratory currently based at NIHE, Hanoi, Vietnam
Dr. Hannah Clapham, recently joined the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam as a postdoctoral researcher and is currently working on sero-epidemiology studies of dengue and other viral infections.
Dr. Matthew Graham, currently taking a post-doctoral research position at Johns Hopkins and residing at Ho Chih Minh city. His work has focused on the role of contact networks in disease transmission and control and measles disease dynamics including analysing and forecasting an outbreak in Guinea.
Participants can attend preliminary workshops on Introductory R programming and tableau® which will be held at the same venue.
