A team of researchers in applied mathematics has created a sophisticated computational model that simulates the dynamics of COVID-19 community transmission and the effects of vaccinations and other non-pharmaceutical interventions.
The team includes Anita Layton, professor of applied mathematics and Canada 150 Research Chair in mathematical biology and medicine, and Mehrshad Sadria, a PhD candidate in applied mathematics.
In this latest work, the pair are expanding ongoing research as part of a collaboration with the University Health Network, which was enabled by rapid research funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
Layton and Sadria based their computation model on Ontario’s recent experience with COVID-19 and data from the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table.
