NIMBioS Past Postdoctoral Fellow
Dates: January 2015 – August 2016
Project Title: A mathematical framework for elucidating the impact of environmental drivers on the incidence of emerging and re-emerging pathogens
Suzanne O'Regan (Applied Mathematics, University College Cork, Ireland, 2011) is developing a mathematical framework to elucidate the influence of changing environmental drivers on infectious disease risk.
After completing her fellowship, O'Regan joined the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina A&T State University as an assistant professor.
