Applying Mathematical Models to Disease Spread & Social Contagion with Dr. PJ Lamberson

For this episode, we sat down with Dr. PJ Lamberson (UCLA) to discuss mathematical modeling. How does a virus like COVID-19 spread, and what can we do to slow it down? How different is the spread of “viral” information on social media? Dr. Lamberson digs into the nuts and bolts, explaining how we can use models to understand the things that happen in our everyday lives.
