Optimal Malaria Response Strategies

On this page you will find several videos explaining some of my recent results on malaria intervention strategies. This work is in conjunction with Alexander Moffett, Dave Morton, and Sahotra Sarkar. I will post links to the relevant papers as those papers are published.  A more detailed discussion of the mathematics of the underlying model is presented here.

You can also read a related paper on designing Markov decision processes that describes more of the mathematics of the application.


A brief introductory video on the setup of the model.

Minimizing Deaths

Minimizing Economic Impact
