Infectious Disease Outbreaks: When Technologies Bring New Uncertainty

In an increasingly connected world, infectious diseases can spread rapidly amongst populations. Dr. Sophia Latham is studying how new technologies impact the decision-making process to restrict the impact of emerging infectious diseases. She has decided to focus on the additional uncertainty brought by new technologies, which can make decisions more complex and the outcomes less predictable. Her findings may facilitate better decision making, thus improving health, welfare and trade conditions.
