Jeremy Harris

Postdoctoral Fellow Researcher




Jeremy did his PhD in applied math at University of Pittsburgh (2017), where he studied dynamical systems and their application to biological systems. Jeremy did his first postdoctoral position in the Koelle lab, where he collaborated with experimentalists to study cellular coinfection of influenza A virus in cell culture. He joined the Weitz group at Georgia Tech as a postdoctoral fellow in June 2020 and has been modeling asymptomatic transmission in COVID-19. His longer-term project is to develop a math modeling framework that allows for longer-term relationships between viruses and their microbial hosts, incorporates phenotypic responses to cellular MOI, and moves between individual cellular responses and epidemiological dynamics.
