The Purdue Integrative Data Science Initiative (IDSI) is hosting a Virtual Coffee Klatch today (May 7). The virtual meeting is second in the series on Data Science and COVID-19 pandemic modeling research at Purdue. Discussions will consider capabilities for detection and tracing of COVID-19 cases and explore opportunities for modeling epidemiological data sets.

Opening remarks will be provided by the following panelists, with general discussion to follow:

  • Tamara Kinzer-Ursem, the Marta E. Gross Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
  • Mohammad Adibuzzaman, research scientist, Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering.
  • Nan Kong, associate professor, Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.

The meeting will be held 11 a.m.-noon at this WebEx link. Participants do not need to register.

“Purdue leads in many areas of data science and human health sciences. Our goal is to help our research communities come together to explore immediate and emerging opportunities, and support their efforts to rapidly develop and deliver the technological solutions that society needs during this crisis,” says Catherine Hill, associate director of the Integrative Data Science Initiative. “One challenge central to researchers in data science fields that we hope to help address through this forum is around data sourcing.”

David Ebert, director of IDSI, adds: “This is a great opportunity to further engage Purdue’s interdisciplinary expertise to address a global challenge and enable more effective intervention and response in a second wave and in future pandemics.”
