Title: Modelling crowd flow in the presence of a pathogen.

The accurate prediction of the dynamics and properties of a dilute-to-dense crowd flow of pedestrians under complex external conditions is critical for strategic urban planning. Pedestrian models rely on a stochastic particle-based description of human interaction, where individuals are regarded as “particles” interacting via different competing forces (i.e. short-range contact repulsion and friction, long-range social distancing) and a target desired velocity which is environment-specific. Moreover, in the extraordinary health-care situation posed by COVID-19, a mathematical and numerical analysis of pedestrian flow combined with new infection models could represent a useful tool to predict the spreading of the disease in urban scenarios for control/mitigation purposes.

The target of this project is to formulate a novel particle- based simulation framework to model pedestrian dynamics fully coupled with stochastic infection- transmission models and apply it to urban situations characterized by the presence of large groups of people in motion.
The postdoctoral candidate will work under the supervision of Ikerbasque Prof. Marco Ellero (CFD group, BCAM) and Dr. Dae-Jin Lee (Applied Statistics group, BCAM) on the developments and use of discrete particle-simulation methods to better understand the dynamics of pedestrian flows.
