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/
Pre-print to “Threshold analyses on rates of testing, transmission, and contact for COVID-19 control in a university setting” https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.21.20158303v1.full.pdf

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 @hanishatatapudi @sonzasingh @shifali @skhatami
Check out the first version of our tool for NY for Evaluating Phased Reopening Decisions
Excellent presentations of their work by graduate students at the INFORMS Healthcare conference, 2019………..

… 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.
Vijeta is joining MGH after finishing his MS in Industrial Engineering with an excellent thesis on control optimization modeling for identifying optimal screening schedules for cancers in low infrastructure settings.
Project from my 200-level GenEd class, 16 students from 8 different majors – engineering, public health, computer science, economics, physics, biology, management, journalism. They did a literature review for identifying quantified correlations between social determinants and behavior, and behavior and HIV. And developed a differential equations simulation model for predicting impact of addressing social determinants. So proud of them!
