The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the interconnectedness of public health and economic outcomes. Yet interdisciplinary teams of infectious disease modelers and economists have been integrating the economic theory of human behavior into infectious disease models for over a decade.
Professor Bayham will highlight several insights from these interdisciplinary efforts, discussing their application during the COVID-19 pandemic and suggest a path forward for research on how human behavior affects epidemiology.
Jude Bayham is an Associate Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at Colorado State University and in the Department of Epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health. He is an environmental and resource economist who works at the intersection of the environment, human health and policy. Bayham has served on the Colorado Governor’s COVID-19 Modeling Team since April 2020.
This event is free and open to the public.
