About Course

This micro-course introduces how to use ‘events’ in the R package deSolve. The ‘events’ function can be used to implement changes in the model at fixed times. In this example, we illustrate how to add vaccination at fixed time points in an SIR model.

If you are unfamiliar with the R package deSolve, there is a prerequisite micro-course (Implementing ODEs in R) which covers the relevant background.

About the instructor

These courses aim to equip you with the confidence to apply skills in mathematical modelling and data analytics in high-quality research, based on my experience working as an infectious disease modeller at the Big Data Institute University of Oxford, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the University of Warwick. I have taught mathematical modelling, statistics and R programming to audiences ranging from undergraduate students to professionals. I have designed and led courses internationally (University of Malaya and Federal University of Bahia, Brazil) and in the UK (University of Leeds, Warwick, LSHTM). Prior to this, I completed a doctorate in mathematical modelling of infectious disease at the University of Liverpool, following a Master’s degree in applied statistics from the University of Lancaster.
