Dirk Brockmann
Humboldt-Universität Berlin

Dirk Brockmann heads the project group "Epidemiological Modeling of Infectious Diseases" at Robert Koch-Institut (RKI). He models the spread and dynamics of infectious diseases using mathematical models, numerical methods and application-oriented computer simulations of complex spread phenomena. One example of the work of Brockmann's team is the "mobility monitor", which analyzes the spread of the coronavirus using mobile phone or mobility data. Brockmann's team is also responsible for the "data donation" campaign. The campaign uses aggregated health data, which is transmitted to the RKI via fitness wristbands, for example, to draw conclusions about the incidence of infection in Germany. Dirk Brockmann's project group is part of a cooperation between the RKI and the Institute of Biology at Humboldt-Universität Berlin and Brockmann's teaching area of Epidemiological Modeling of Infectious Diseases.

Basic Ticket: €25

Access to all talks and workshops, also available as recordings after the conference.

Plus Ticket: €75

Access to all talks and workshops, also available as recordings after the conference. Plus a hardware package worth €150. This includes all the components needed for the workshops: an Octopus board; a sensor for a CO2 traffic light; a speedometer; a fitness bracelet; components for collecting and measuring microplastics.
