Keynote: Real-time modelling to support outbreak response: the perspective of an academic
Dr Anne Cori
MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis
Imperial College London

Abstract: Through selected examples (including influenza, Ebola and SARS-CoV-2), I will give an overview of the key public health questions modelling can answer to support epidemic response in real-time. I will present some of the challenges associated with real-time modelling, and illustrate how software development can mitigate some of those, highlighting remaining gaps which should be addressed for better epidemic preparedness.

About the speaker: Dr Cori is a lecturer in the MRC centre for Global Infectious Diseases Analysis at Imperial College London. She develops statistical methods and tools for the analysis of epidemic data. She is the author of the R package EpiEstim, which has been widely used to monitor transmissibility of SARS-CoV-2 globally. Her research mainly focuses on viruses including Ebola, MERS, influenza and HIV. Over the last two years she has worked mostly on real-time analyses of SARS-CoV-2 transmission and control in England.
