The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
The aim of this work package is to use the current pandemic as an initial exemplar of a specific shock. Our primary focus is to develop a coupled epidemiologic and socio-economic model of Covid-19 dynamics and its societal effects. A crucial part of this package is the identification and curation of data sources that can be used to monitor the impact of policy interventions and inform subsequent models. Alongside data collection and curation, we are building an epidemiological model that allows for variations in social patterns as well as societal and economic factors, such as inequality, to affect the dynamics of spread.
We are hiring two research associates to bring expertise in health, focusing on building the epidemiological model and social science expertise, focusing on modelling the pandemic’s socio-economic impacts. They will work closely together to integrate and link the models that they will be building.
