Nicola Perra (University of Greenwich): Modelling the spreading of the COVID-19 pandemic at different spatio-temporal scales

Abstract | In the talk, I will provide an overview of different approaches I have applied to model the unfolding of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects. In doing so, I will discuss the insights obtained by studying the initial phases of the pandemic, the first wave, and the vaccine rollout in the USA, Europe as well as Latin America. I will also discuss the media coverage and collective internet response to the pandemic.
