NCCID’s new Mod4PH Research Highlights podcast showcases new and relevant math modelling concepts and research for public health.
This episode features Dr Michael Li, a Senior Scientist at the National Microbiology Lab (NML) at the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). Michael currently applies his modelling skill set at PHAC in the development and analysis of disease transmission models of COVID-19, mpox transmission, and other infectious diseases in Canada.
In this episode, Michael spoke with us about the past, present, and future of infectious disease modelling, the different roles and responsibilities of a math modeller, and how he envisions math modelling for public health in the future.
Check out more details about using math models to guide COVID-19 decision making on The Science of Health blog mentioned in this episode.
