Jeffrey Shaman: Local Hydrologic and Meteorologic Constraints on Infectious Disease Transmission

Jeffrey Shaman studies the intersection of climate, atmospheric science, hydrology and biology. His talk covers the environmental determinants of infectious disease transmission and in particular, how hydrologic variability affects mosquito ecology and mosquito-borne disease transmission, and how atmospheric conditions impact the survival, transmission and seasonality of pathogens. He concludes with how his research team works to develop systems to forecast infectious disease outbreaks at a range of time scales.
