In the Fall of 2022, I will be creating and teaching, for the second time, an upper level undergraduate math course, Computational Modeling in Public Health. The course focuses on methods that people have been used to study COVID as well as some modeling techniques for answering questions surrounding the opioid crisis. Mathematically, the main types of models that we will study will be differential equations models and agent-based models. The main purpose of the course is to teach students some of what goes into creating and properly using computational models to make public health policy predictions and decisions. In this talk, I will describe the course and some related research questions that have come out of it.
