Caitlin Rivers

I am a computational epidemiology student with the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory (NDSSL) at Virginia Tech, and a Department of Defense SMART scholar.

I’m interested in using computational methods to understand how infectious diseases, behaviors, and ideas spread in populations. My research is currently focused on the modeling and simulation of emerging infectious diseases, particularly zoonoses.

I received my Master in Public Health with a concentration in infectious disease in the spring of 2013, and expect my PhD in the department of Genetics, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology in 2016. My undergraduate degree is in Anthropology from the University of New Hampshire.
