Network Modeling for Epidemics (NME)

This week-long yearly summer course introduces traditional compartmental models for epidemics, stochastic microsimulation epidemic models, the methodology for classical descriptive network analysis, and new statistical methods for network analysis using exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs). Students learn to use these methods to develop their own epidemic models, with a focus on data-driven network models of HIV/STI transmission and control.
