Nina Fefferman's research focuses on the mathematics of epidemiology, evolutionary and behavioral ecology, and self-organizing behaviors, especially of systems described by networks. The research in the Fefferman Lab frequently focuses on disease in human and/or animal populations, and how disease and disease-related behavioral ecology can affect the short-term survival and long-term evolutionary success of a population. Fefferman applies insights from her research to design practical, real-world strategies for epidemic/pandemic preparedness and response.
