MATH+ Member Uses Mobility Traces for Simulations of COVID-19 Spreading in Berlin

© Kai Nagel

Scientists of the research group around Kai Nagel at TU Berlin create simulations on Berlin and reopening scenarios. They are experts in human mobility research. But now, they used their human mobility models and supplemented them with previously known virus infection dynamics to create new calculations for the possible spread of the virus. These simulations can also be used to calculate the potential success of measures such as contact restrictions or school closings.

Kai Nagel is also a member of MATH+. Together with Martin Skutella, he does research in the Application Area “Networks” (AA3) on the topic of “Nash flows over time in transport and evacuation simulation”.
