Infectious Disease Control

Project summary

Existing models that try to incorporate health-related behaviours do not do justice to constantly changing circumstances, human irrationality and the wide variety of beliefs and actions of individuals, influenced by gender, age, the behaviour of friends and family. As Distinguished Lorentz Fellow, Coffeng will receive the time and resources to develop a new type of model that integrates mathematical models and models for individual and group behaviour. His work will lead to tools that may better mitigate an outbreak in the future, but also address the persistence of adverse health-related behaviours such as anti-vaccination movements, and the widening of social inequities.
