WHO WE ARE

Our Goals

The University of Idaho’s Pandemic Modeling Group is combination of modelers, mathematicians, sociologists, and more – endeavoring to predict the spread of COVID-19 in rural communities. We are are part of Idaho’s Institute for Modeling, Collaboration and Innovation (IMCI).

MODEL

We are using an SEIRS model and a survey-informed agent-based model to understand the effectiveness of interventions in fighting the spread of COVID-19 in rural communities to protect the most vulnerable parts of our communities.

SHARE

We are creating a space to communicate our findings transparently with the public to help us all understand the current and future status of the pandemic.

INFORM

Assist our public health and local officials in their response to the pandemic.
