Adam is a Data Science Specialist – Math Modeler at the MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions, St. Michael’s Hospital. He recently graduated from a Master of Science in Mathematics and Statistics program at Queen’s University in August 2020. The main focus of his research and study was applied mathematics, mostly in the field of mathematical biology. He also obtained his undergraduate degree at Queen’s University, where he studied mathematics and economics.
As a research assistant during his graduate studies, Adam examined the dynamical behaviour of different infectious disease models. More specifically, he looked at the impact that various types of imperfect infection-derived immunity mechanisms have on long-term disease prevalence and the probability of individuals being reinfected. Furthermore, his research also looked at the implications of mass vaccinated populations with imperfect partially-protective vaccines.
Adam is currently working on a project related to COVID-19 incidence and mortality within long-term care homes.
