Integrating insights from multiplexed pathogen surveillance into epidemiologic models (ID Epi Seminar Series)

April 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Headshot of Akiko IwasakiThis hybrid in-person/virtual webinar will be presented by Saki Takahashi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The in-person portion will be held in Kresge G2 and does not require registration. Register for the Zoom here.

Saki Takahashi is broadly interested in developing mathematical and statistical models, closely linked to empirical data, to understand how immunity shapes the risk, burden, and spread of infectious diseases, and to harness these insights to inform public health interventions. She works on a variety of pathogen systems, including measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases, non-polio enteroviruses, dengue, malaria, and SARS-CoV-2. Saki holds an AB in Applied Mathematics from Harvard College, ScM in Epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University, and completed a post-doc at the University of California, San Francisco.
