About Sheikh Taslim Ali

My primary research area is the Infectious Diseases Epidemiology, particularly respiratory viruses including influenza, RSV, SARS CoV-2 viruses. The main focus of my research is to understand the disease dynamics through stochastic modeling and statistical inference of the outbreak; estimation epidemiological parameters via time-series modelling under Bayesian framework. I develop stochastic simulations (Monte Carlo) of infectious disease dynamics, with the aim of determining how the effectiveness of containment and mitigation policies depend on disease severity. Currently, I am working on developing the general mechanistic models to address the seasonality, prediction and forecasting of influenza virus transmission modulated by the different potential drivers (meteorological, environmental and social).
