|Title:||Behavioral modelling in ecology and epidemiology.|
|Seminar:||Slow Pitch Seminar|
|Speaker:||Timothy Reluga, Penn State University|
|Behavior, social interactions, and their consequences are potentially the most
maliable aspects of human and animal populations that influence the health and
wellbeing of those individuals and communities. Many open mathematical
problems can be found in this field, with both theoretical and applied flavors.
In this talk, I'll outline some of my ongoing work on the analysis of behavior
problems in epidemiology and ecology. Time-permitting, I'll discuss optimal
social distancing in a flu pandemic, management of disease transmission in a
spatially distributed population, and selfish herd theory.|
