Mike Sanderson, W.S. and E.C. Jones professor of epidemiology and associate director of the Center for Outcomes Research and Epidemiology in K-State's diagnostic medicine and pathobiology department, will present "Foot-and-Mouth Disease Modeling and Analytics to Optimize Control" at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 4, via Zoom.
Sanderson received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University and his Master of Science from Washington State University.
Sanderson's research team is focused on the epidemiology of disease and decreased production of beef operations by applying the tools of epidemiology and simulation modeling to identify risks and facilitate decision-making. Specific research interests include modeling biosecurity practices for beef operations, including the use of risk analysis to identify optimal biosecurity and management programs for diseases such as foot-and-mouth disease, bovine respiratory disease complex and bovine viral diarrhea. In addition to research, Sanderson teaches several courses, including Intermediate Epidemiology for graduate and Master of Public Health students; and, Introduction to Disease Modeling and Quantitative Risk Analysis for graduate students. Sanderson serves as a mentor and advisor of Master of Public Health, master's and doctoral students.
