Alessandro Vespignani, "Computational Epidemiology at the time of COVID-19"
Our first distinguished speaker is Prof. Alessandro Vespignani (Northeastern University, USA), who has enormously contributed to developing methods, tools and analyses to better understand the characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 infection, and to make predictions and advise policy makers over the course of the pandemic.
He will present his latest work in a talk titled "Computational Epidemiology at the time of COVID-19".
Prof. Vespignani is currently Director of the Network Science Institute and Sternberg Family Distinguished University Professor at Northeastern University, USA. He is a professor with interdisciplinary appointments in the College of Computer and Information Science, College of Science, and the Bouvé College of Health Sciences. Dr. Vespignani's work focuses on statistical and numerical simulation methods to model spreading phenomena, including the realistic and data-driven computational modeling of biological, social, and technological systems. For several years his work has focused on the spreading of infectious diseases, working closely with the CDC and the WHO.
