networks in disease ecology

network epidemiology, network physics, disease ecology, outbreak analysis

We are a research group at the Department of Molecular Medicine of the University of Padova in Italy. We combine complex-system physics, heavy computation and epidemiology to study the drivers of pathogens' spread in human and animal populations.


fall-2023: open position: We have a position open on the modelling of interacting respiratory infections. Check out more details here.

fall-2023: we are heading to Epidemics9 in Bologna on 28 Nov-1 Dec. We will present 5 posters about dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 variants, influenza subtypes co-circulation and interacting pathogens.

fall-2023: Marika has started her PhD in Physics. She will continue her work in co-supervision with the LIPH on the modelling of interacting pathogens.

Aug-2023: Drivers and impact of the early silent invasion of SARS-CoV-2 Alpha. new pre-print out on medRxiv.

July-2023: Modeling the impact of Malakit intervention: one more step towards malaria elimination in the Guiana Shield? new pre-print out on medRxiv.
