Don Klinkenberg is interested in epidemics of infectious diseases. He works as a mathematical modeller at the Centre for Infectious Disease Control, part of the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands. His focus is the use of genetic data and analysis of outbreaks. Before he moved to RIVM in 2015, he graduated in Medical Biology in Amsterdam in 1998, did his PhD on transmission of classical swine fever at the Central Veterinary Institute in Lelystad, and worked from 2003 to 2014 at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Utrecht.
De eerste Zombie resultaten van LowlandZ
My part in the LowlandZ project is providing the scientific basis, and analysing the data. I will illustrate my role by explaining the differences and similarities between the LowlandZ outbreaks and real infectious disease outbreaks. Then I will discuss what we may learn from the collected data.
