Health Behaviour

Many health conditions have a strong behavioural component. Contact dynamics determine how a contagious disease can spread, and how social norms are transmitted. Activity and diet have a strong correlation with a variety of health effects. We have successfully leveraged iEpi contact data and agent-based simulations to make important contributions to the study of contagious disease. We are currently engaged in several studies either in collection or analysis on using iEpi data for chronic diseases such as diabetes, or trauma recovery.
