Infectious Disease & Modeling Podcast

Nick Menzies in Conversation at Meeting.

Faculty Nick Menzies contributed to the Harvard Catalyst podcast ThinkResearch with the session “The Science of Adding and Subtracting: Modeling Outcomes of Disease”.

The podcast discusses mathematical modeling and how it is used to study infectious disease. Menzies touches upon his research on tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS epidemics, including its history and evolution, as well as the challenges of modelling these two conditions. Menzies also draws upon experiences from his own career, laying out the path that led him from his initial training as a dentist in New Zealand, to his current position as Assistant Professor of Global Health in the Department of Global Health and Population, and core faculty at CHDS.
