Quantitative Biology Colloquium

The EpiCovDA pipeline: from reported data to forecasts
Series: Quantitative Biology Colloquium
Location: ONLINE
Presenter: Hannah Biegel, Department of Mathematics, University of Arizona

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, researchers across the country developed forecasts for weekly cases and deaths for the United States. Such forecasts have been used by the CDC to communicate the expected severity for each state. Here we describe EpiCovDA, a forecasting framework developed with Joceline Lega. We will discuss the workflow of creating our forecasts each week, including data sources, our modeling methodology, forecast visualization, and forecast submission to the COVID Hub group.
