Welcome! The Federation Starship Epimath is an Intrepid class starship, based in the departments of Epidemiology, Complex Systems, & Mathematics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Our primary mission is in mathematical epidemiology, and is focused on using and developing parameter estimation and identifiability techniques to model disease dynamics.

Much of our work is in building multi-scale models of infectious diseases, including examining cholera, environmentally driven diseases, and HPV dynamics. Our research blends mathematics, statistics, and epidemiology to understand transmission dynamics, inform optimal intervention strategies, and improve forecasting.
