Science Café: Modeling the COVID-19 Pandemic in Ohio
October 7 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Over the last several weeks many mathematicians, statisticians and data scientists have found themselves involved with various efforts in response to the public health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Did predictive modeling really help with COVID preparedness and decision making?
Following up on his earlier lectures on the topic over the summer, Dr. Grzegorz Rempala, Ohio State Professor of Public Health and Mathematics, will give a perspective of how various mathematical methods turned out to work (or not) in practical settings of the daily predictions of the pandemic size in Ohio. In particular, he will briefly outline some new ideas and possible improvements in current plans for pandemic effects mitigation.
Who: All Ohio State affiliates and community members
When: Wednesday, October 7 at 6:30 p.m.
