Mathematical modelling and Public Health

Kingston, ON

Join the Faculty of Arts and Science and Dr. Felicia Magpantay for a lecture on Mathematical Modeling and Public Health as part of the Sustainable Freedom Lecture Series in the Dunin-Deshpande Queen's Innovation Centre Rose Event Commons in Mitchell Hall

Mathematical modeling is a powerful tool for studying complex systems. Recently we have seen many of its applications in designing public health strategies during a pandemic. In this lecture we will discuss some of the history behind mathematics applied to public health, and some open research problems.

Sustainable Freedom Lecture Series brings together scholars from the Faculty of Arts and Science to shed light on intractable global problems and offer pathways for solutions and options on issues of global significance. All lectures are open to the Queen's community and the public to attend.
