Jaime Cascante Vega

Research Scientist




Jaime was trained in the non-linear dynamics field from a Biomedical Engineering perspective in Universidad de los Andes in Colombia during his BSc and MSc. He was worked in using models to build stories of the relation of traditional infectious disease models and social dynamics using game theory models.  He is interested in the interface of mechanistic mathematical models, data and inference methods to test hypothesis about the world with a strong focus on infectious disease dynamical systems. At Columbia he is working on modelling the transmission of infectious agents in hospital settings and inferring key epidemiological parameters.
