OIT 671: Operational, Economic, and Statistical Modeling in the COVID-19 Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis revealed many fundamental structural, cultural, and operational challenges in the world. Many of these challenges, for example managing patient care in a limited resource environment, were well-known before COVID-19 and the crisis simply highlighted the importance of developing effective strategies to handle them. Others, such as the design and adherence to non-pharmaceutical mitigation strategies like lock-downs, quickly appeared as countries took differing approaches to handling the pandemic. This course will discuss how operational, economic, and statistical modeling can be used to better understand different COVID-19 responses and strategies. This is a PhD seminar that will cover prior research that can shed light onto the COVID-19 crisis, current/ongoing research that directly addresses COVID-19 pressing issues, and will also explore new research directions in this space.The course will consist of a combination of lectures by the instructors, guest lectures by more »

The course will be eclectic in terms of approaches, including tools from operations research, machine learning, statistics, econometrics, and microeconomics. The course will be co-taught via live virtual sessions by Prof. Carri Chan and Prof. Gabriel Weintraub and will be available to Business, Economics, Statistics, and Engineering PhD students from Columbia and Stanford University.
