Join us for the Emerging Pathogens Institute virtual COVID-19 Vaccine Seminar Series. Our fourth speaker is Thomas Hladish, Ph.D., a research assistant scientist in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Department of Biology, and an EPI affiliate. Hladish uses supercomputing and robust statistical analyses to probe questions about the dynamics of infectious diseases and how they are transmitted. One of his research pursuits includes using modeling to better understand why some infectious diseases resist control measures, and how interventions may be best deployed for maximum effectiveness. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he led a project to model health care capacity in Florida.
