Alessandro Puleio graduated in Medical Biotechnology defending a thesis titled Study of dispersion and diffusion of pathogens and emerging and re-emerging diseases by numerical approaches.

05.23.2018

On Monday 14 of May, Alessandro Puleio, a student that works with the CBRNe Master courses (in the first cooperation between Faculties of Engineering and Medicine for an undergraduate student) graduated in Medical Biotechnology defending a thesis titled Study of dispersion and diffusion of pathogens and emerging and re-emerging diseases by numerical approaches.

The  thesis was carried out at the Quantum Electronics and Plasma Physics Research Laboratory directed by Dr. Gaudio, under the supervision of Dr. Jean-François Ciparisse from the Department of Industrial Engineering and of Prof. Mancinelli, Dr. Laura Morciano, Dr. Andrea Malizia and  from the Department of Biomedicine and Prevention and Dr. Orlando Cenciarelli and 

In this thesis, numerical approaches have been used for the simulation of the spread of infectious diseases due to a natural emergence or re-emergence or to an accidental or intentional release. Two software have been used: SpatioTemporal Epidemiological Modeller (STEM) and Comsol Multiphysics. The results obtained showed that both the software are suitable for the analysis of the impact of such events through the elaboration of specific models. Thus, by using these numerical approaches it is possible to simulate and predict the spread of infectious diseases and therefore to take effective countermeasures
