PHS Monday Seminar: Abraham Flaxman, PhD- “The IHME COVID-19 Projection Model after a year of a pandemic”
March 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Associate Professor of Health Metrics Sciences
Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
University of Washington School of Medicine
In this seminar, I will share some of the methods and data that we have been using at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) to project the global course of the COVID outbreak and reflect on how our approach has grown and changed after nearly a full year of producing regularly updated estimates.
Abraham Flaxman, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Health Metrics Sciences at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. He is currently leading the development of a simulation platform to derive “what-if” results from Global Burden of Disease estimates and is engaged in methodological and operational research on verbal autopsy. Dr. Flaxman has previously designed software tools such as DisMod-MR that IHME uses to estimate the Global Burden of Disease, and the Bednet Stock-and-Flow Model, which has produced estimates of insecticide-treated net coverage in sub-Saharan Africa. This work uses Integrative Systems Modeling to combine a system dynamics model of process with a statistical model of data to bring together all available sources of information.
