EPPIcenter seminar: Shweta Bansal

Unraveling host behavioral heterogeneity for infectious disease dynamics and control

Dr Shweta Bansal is a Provost's Distinguished Associate Professor at Georgetown University's Department of Biology. Before joining Georgetown University in 2012, she completed a RAPIDD postdoctoral fellowship at the CIDD at Penn State University and the Fogarty International Center at NIH, under the mentorship of Professor Bryan Grenfell and Dr. Ellis McKenzie. She completed her Ph.D in 2008 in network modeling and infectious disease ecology at the University of Texas at Austin and was advised by Professor Lauren Ancel Meyers. I was a NASA-Jenkins Fellow during this time.

Dr Bansal (pronounced Shway-ta Bun-sel) received a Masters degree in 2004 in Computational and Applied Mathematics (now known as the CSEM Program) from UT Austin, and a bachelors degree in 2002 in Mathematics and Computer Science from Santa Clara University.

The EPPIcenter at UCSF aims to advance the understanding of infectious diseases to reduce global morbidity and mortality. We believe that the greatest success in the fight against infectious diseases will come through a highly interdisciplinary, systems epidemiology approach, connecting traditionally siloed theoretical work, technology development, generation and collection of empiric data, and analysis using statistical and mathematical modeling.
