VIPRA, Viral Infection Propagation Through Air-Travel, is a multi-university inter-disciplinary research project focused on developing a methodology for using computational simulations to reduce the likelihood of epidemics. My research will involve optimizing mathematical models developed by other groups to run more efficiently on modern computer hardware, including accelerators such as Graphics Processing Units. My research will require the development of new computational algorithms that improve the efficiency of these models.
