Join us in Welcoming Dr. Miriam Nuño to GGAM!

Dr. Nuño is an applied mathematician and biostatistics professor at UC Davis. Her research lies at the intersection of applied mathematics, statistics, public health, epidemiology, and health disparities research.

Dr. Nuño is interested in the application of statistics and applied mathematics to solve public health challenges, reduce health disparities, and improve patient health outcomes. Her expertise lies at the interface of mathematical modeling, biostatistics, data science, epidemiology, and public health. She is interested in the modeling of infectious diseases such as influenza and COVID-19, outbreak prediction, and forecasting using wastewater surveillance. She is also very interested in understanding the health effects of wildfire exposure.

Students wanting to collaborate with Dr. Nuño should have a background in at least one of these areas: ordinary differential equations, Bayesian statistics, computer science, linear regression, survival analysis, and data science. We are thrilled to be adding another brilliant mind to GGAM!
