Citizen Science for Epidemiology

We're starting a new collaboration with Dr. Matthew Silk at the University of Edinburgh. Matt's an ecologist who works mainly on the social dynamics, population biology and epidemiology of wildlife populations.

Together we'll be designing and building a free and open source online game to understand how people's social networks and decision making change how diseases spread. This will gather data to contribute towards Matt's research, but should also be fun and interesting to play in its own right.

The project is funded by the Royal Society, through Matt's University Research Fellowship, and runs from 2023-2028.
