Disease Mapping Working Group

Established in October 2017, this working group aims to develop the Center’s collective expertise in mapping and spatial modeling of infectious diseases. These efforts include: developing learning resources for other center members and working on collaborative mapping/modeling projects to provide hands-on experience to group members. We’ve recently developed tutorials for mapping using the R programming language and are currently developing a species distribution model of a tapeworm of public health concern. We are a team of graduate students, post-docs and faculty from a variety of disciplines and departments with a common interest in mapping infectious diseases. We meet once or twice a month for an hour and all interested are welcome to join at any time.
