Development of infectious disease research and teaching software

Using computer models to study infectious diseases can be challenging for students and researchers who are not trained as modelers. To make this process easier, we have developed several software packages, implemented in the popular R language, to help individuals learn about and analyze infectious disease models both at the individual and population level. The goal of this project is to further advance this software by implementing new features, making tutorials, testing existing features, adding new features, and more. This will increase the usefulness and power of the software and will give future students and researchers better tools to learn about and analyze different infectious diseases. This project is quantitative. We will make use of the R language for all parts of this project. The project is offered by the Handel group.
