How does population structure influence host-pathogen dynamics in mosquito-transmitted diseases?

Project description

Improved agent-based models of mosquito-transmitted diseases

Mosquito-transmitted diseases affect millions of people worldwide every year. Despite advances in computational models, agent-based models are still often outperformed in disease forecasting by their idealised mathematical counterparts. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SpatialStructure project will leverage Gaussian processes as a powerful statistical framework to significantly increase the sensitivity of agent-based models and thoroughly assess different model parameters. The proposed research could deepen our understanding of how spatial structures affect host–pathogen dynamics, thereby improving disease forecasting and the evaluation of proposed intervention strategies.
