Ph.D. Proposal Defense: "Complex Multi-Agent Simulation of MSM HIV Transmission For Examining Concurrency", Robert Puckett
In our research, we build and examine a multi-agent simulation of HIV transmission via concurrent relationships in a MSM community. Our simulation will illuminate some of the behavioral factors and sexual network characteristics that contribute to the spread of HIV. Principally, we believe that we will observe a profound impact from the acute HIV infection phase interacting with concurrent relationships to produce significantly larger epidemics. Insights gained from our simulation will aid policy makers in developing more useful HIV surveillance methods and intervention strategies. (Read More)
