Virtual graduation celebration for Shifali Bansal- On the plus was nice that alumni and students away on internships could attend… was fun playing codenames
Effective COVID-19 control at universities are dependent on contact rate, asymptomatic testing compliance, and face-mask-use/ 6ft distancing compliance. Preliminary results from applying our previous simple SEIR model(https://medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.21.20158303v1.full.pdf). But more specific to a university plan of mass-testing twice per week. Online app of model: https://covid-university.herokuapp.com
WebApp ‘COVID19 university simulator’ for evaluating varying levels of mass test, trace and test, delays in testing, transmission rate (face mask use, physical distancing), contact rate in a university setting https://covid-university.herokuapp.com/

Version 2 of simulation V2 is released. This is an interactive simulation tool for evaluating combinations of contact reduction, contact tracing and testing, and universal testing needed for efficient phased reopening . This version allows evaluations of multiple alternative combinations, flexibility to change units costs, and flexibility in setting analytic time-period. Great work by @xinmengzhao [ Read More ]

Excellent presentations of their work by graduate students at the INFORMS Healthcare conference, 2019……….. Left to right- Shifali Bansal, Xinmeng Zhao, Hanisha Tatapudi, Sonza Singh, and Nazanin … and Escape Room success!!
Congratulations Buyan for being selected to the Insight Data Engineering Fellowship Program !!
Shifali will work as a Quality Assurance inter. Her job responsibilities include process validation and software validation that support the maintenance and compliance to Super Brush’s ISO 13485:2016 quality system.
