Paper Co-written by Faculty Member Published in National Journal
Published on June 5, 2019
A paper by co-written by Michael Robert PhD, assistant professor of mathematics, was published in "Epidemics," a national journal. The paper is a mathematical modeling exploration of potential dengue dynamics in U.S. Cities.
Dr. Robert said the paper isn’t meant to serve as a predictive model, but rather explore the role of temperature in mosquito-borne disease dynamics. It compares different temperature patterns and studies how those differences could contribute to the potential emergence of dengue and other viruses such as Zika, chikungunya and Mayaro virus.
Dr. Robert collaborated with researchers at University of New Mexico and Louisiana State University to write and publish the paper.
