Y. Ji will defend his PhD dissertation on Wednesday 1 February 2023, entitled: ’Emerging Viral Infections in Vulnerable Populations: Epidemiology and mathematical modeling‘.


Epidemiological research serves as a key pillar in understanding how pathogens transmit and their transmission consequences in the human society. The susceptibility and vulnerability of certain populations to particular viral infections are determined by many elements, which can mutually interact as well. It is clear that different types of pathogens are widely co-circulating among human population. Some of them may co-infect a same individual that exacerbates the clinical outcome. In this thesis, I attempted to understand the epidemiological and clinical features of viral infections, with focus on HPV, HEV and SARS-CoV-2, from several perspectives.
