APPLIED AND COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS SEMINAR

**Speaker:**Sivan Leviyang, Georgetown University

**Title: ***
Big Data and HIV Modeling
*

**Abstract:**
Over the past decade, the breadth and depth of HIV infection datasets has exploded. From a mathematical and statistical perspective, these new datasets pose significant challenges. In this talk, I will consider a high dimensional stochastic ODE model of HIV infection applicable to such big datasets. I will then describe a computational inference method through which the model can be fit to data in order to address problems of biological significance.

**Time:** Friday, March 1, 2013, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
