Computational Methods in Epidemiology

There is an increasing interest in modeling risk associated with emerging infectious diseases (EIDs). Disease risks, (like risk associated with invasive species), are endogenous, however most model treat risk as exogenous and intrinsic. The SPIDER group, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and Arizona State University (ASU), will study models both to forecast and estimate the risk associated with emerging infectious diseases in humans livestock and plants. In this poster we present a simple example of how we can model infectious diseases.
