The titles of the 10 articles were published in the April 15 issue of the AJE, and award winners were recognized during the 2016 Society for Epidemiologic Research (SER) meeting in Miami on June 24, which coincided with the Epidemiology Congress of the Americas.
Dr. Galea co-authored the article with Dr. Brandon D. L. Marshall, assistant professor of epidemiology at Brown University School of Public Health. Dr. Galea and Dr. Marshall showed how agent-based models, which simulate the actions and interactions of autonomous “agents” to assess their effects on a system as a whole, “can be used to simulate counterfactual outcomes in the presence of complexity.”
An article co-authored by Dean Galea was also selected as an AJE 2014 Article of the Year.
