‘Mathematical Modelling and Statistics in Medicine’
by Dr Zahid Asghar, Lincoln Medical School, College of Science, University of Lincoln, Lincoln, UK.
I will give examples of deterministic and stochastics models used in infectious disease epidemiology. The way these models have been developed for HIV in particular and Covid19 recently. I will give an over view of some of the research being done in our department (Community Health Research Unit / Lincoln International Institute of Rural Health). Finally I will conclude by highlighting the importance of interdisciplinary nature of research, now more than ever with “Big Data” we need to link AI and machine learning into our contemporary paradigm of research.
Dr Zahid Asghar is a Mathematical Modeller and a Medical Statistician based in the Medical School. He is the Director of postgraduate studies for the School of Health and Social Care. He leads the Big Data team as part of CaHRU and LIIRH.
