Over the last year, COVID-19 has dominated almost every aspect of our lives. In this talk Dr. Gillis will present several ongoing COVID-19 research projects spanning the domains of computer science, mathematics and public health. While the talk will focus on the use of scenario analysis and agent based models, data issues, science communication, and collaboration also will be discussed.
Dr. Daniel Gillis from U of G ‘s computer science department spends most of his time on interdisciplinary teams focused on public health, natural resource management in collaborative projects with the CFIA, the PHAC and the Saugeen Ojibway First Nations, to name a few. Dr. Gillis has most recently been working with the Inuit of Rigolet, Nunatsiavut, Labrador to develop mobile applications for environment and health monitoring, and to develop tools to address a lack of internet and cellular infrastructure.
