MSc. Defence: Parameter Estimation Using Random Forests For Two-Stage Individual Level Models of Infectious Disease Spread

CANDIDATE: Matthew Baxter ABSTRACT: This thesis aims to develop various random forest models in order to estimate parameters for disease model transmission using the standard Individual-Level Model (ILM). Data is simulated using an ILM in a susceptible-infectious-removed (SIR) framework. The standard ILM is then extended to a Two-Level Individual-Level Model (TILM) to account for between-city and within-city disease spread. An observation model is then applied to this TILM to represent epidemics observed in the real-world. From there, random forest models are fit in three scenarios...

Master of Data Science

The University of Guelph launched a Master of Data Science program in response to the growing and anticipated need for top-tier data scientists in Canada. You can expect to gain a diverse and comprehensive understanding of data mining; data warehousing and database management; extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL); machine learning; artificial intelligence (AI); statistical modelling; scripting; and data visualization.

For program-specific details, please see the Master of Data Science page
