This project seeks to develop fundamental science that can drive the response to, and planning for, significant national incidents, from infectious disease outbreaks to catastrophic natural and human-initiated disasters. Real-world problems identified and posed by stakeholders drive this fundamental and applied research program. Past applied work has included real-time epidemic response, a variety of infectious disease forecasting, tabletop planning support, and detailed policy analysis for the response to outbreaks.
