CFI Awards Seyed Moghadas $134,331 for Research and in Developing Highly Secured Computer Infrastructure
Seyed Moghadas , associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics will receive $134,331 for his project called: Quantitative Methods and Infrastructure for Rapid, Evidence-Based Decision-Support in Public Health.
Moghadas’ goal is to inform public health policies that can reduce the burden of epidemics of infectious diseases. His research aims to improve the overall health of a population using simulation models. Moghadas’ research is significantly important in the event of an outbreak, such as influenza, where policy makers make informed decisions under uncertainty in stressful environments.
The funding will allow Moghadas to progress in his research and in developing highly secured computer infrastructures to help develop data-driven models more efficiently.
