This course will cover different formulations and analyses of epidemiological models. Topics include host heterogeneity, multiple pathogens, spatial spread, within-host dynamics, and zoonotic spillover.
Some lectures will be based on Modelling Infectious Diseases in Humans and Animals by Matt Keeling and Pejman Rohani. This book is usually available for download as an ebook from university libraries.
AARMS Summer School format:
