Epidemic arrivals and Antibiotic Calenders [video]


Here I give two tiny talks on some of my research from the past couple years. In the first half of the talk I re-examine some popular heuristics for epidemic "time of spread" through the world airline network, and use hitting times and branching processes to explore the mathematical underpinnings of these observations. In the second half of the talk, we zoom in to exploring how antibiotics spreads through a single hospital, the various models and their conflicting recommendations. Mostly just some straightforward dynamical systems, with the opportunity for some cute asymptotic arguments on the side.
