Since early March 2020, solid lab has proactively contributed to data analytics, network science, risk management, and machine learning research for analysis, prediction, and exploration of COVID-19. In addition to our predictive dashboard that leverages data science to forecast the number of cases and provide a spatiotemporal visualization, we are actively working with network scientists, civil engineering, economists, and operational research collaborators on various aspects of COVID-19 related research. This page provides an overview of some parts of this research and the corresponding publications and findings:
