Mathematical Modeling of the 2014 Ebola Outbreak

I had the great pleasure of giving a quick, informal talk on some of my Ebola research this morning at MIT. The content mostly revolves around caseload projections and mid-outbreak case fatality estimation. If you’re interested, feel free to download the PDF or view the slideshow below:

Please Note: I do not factor under-reporting into my Ebola projection models. Those of you who follow me on Twitter know why. I’ll write up a quick blog post ASAP with an explanation (and also outline a method that may help us get a better, more probabilistically defensible idea of what under-reporting of Ebola really looks like in countries affected thus far).

  3. Looking forward to your “more probabilistically defensible idea of what under-reporting of Ebola really looks like.”
