Abstract: Schools in many parts of the world have been closed since March, due to COVID -19. These closures impact negatively families with school-aged children, and society in general. We used an agent-based model with realistic representations of different populations to determine the impact of school reopening on COVID -19 dynamics in two different epidemiological settings.

Bio: Guido is a research faculty at the Department of Biological Sciences at University of Notre Dame. Guido’s research is focused on supporting decision making with the use of mathematical and computational models to understand the dynamics of infectious diseases. In particular, current research interests include the use of agent-based models to evaluate the impact of interventions on the COVID -19 pandemic. His interests also include the evaluation of vaccine impact and vector control in vector-borne diseases, such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika.
