Mathematics Seminar: The Patient-Patch: Hospital Epidemiology as an Ecology Problem


4:10pm Webster Hall B08

Eric Lofgren

Hospital-acquired infections are a pernicious problem in the modern healthcare system, arising from complex interactions between microbes, patients, healthcare providers and the built environment. This talk explores the idea of examining the problem of healthcare associated infections from the perspective of urban disease ecology, using several hospital modeling problems as motivating examples.
