In the framework of the BCAM “Mathematical Modelling Applied to Health” strategy, a series of projects in the field will be launched in different areas of Applied Mathematics. The “Computational Fluid Dynamics” research line. (http://www.bcamath.org/en/research/lines/CFDMS) at the BCAM looks for a PhD candidate to work in the project:

"Pedestrian dynamics modelling of crowd flow and disease transmission”

The accurate prediction of the flow and dynamical properties of a group of pedestrians moving through complex environments is critical for strategic urban planning but also for the design of safety protocols in the presence of a pathogen, i.e. access to buildings, infrastructures etc. In the extraordinary health-care situation posed by COVID-19, a mathematical and numerical analysis of pedestrian flow combined with new pathogen diffusion models is a useful tool to predict the spreading of the disease in several 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 with particular emphasis on hospital structures and/or patient care units. The research will be done collaboration with the Basque Country Health System.

** Deadline: 26th July 2021, 14:00 CET (UTC+1) **.

Applications will be evaluated in a continuous manner, with a response period no longer than 4 weeks after the call deadline.
