  • Lander Willem holds a postdoctoral position to analyse measles transmission dynamics on the individual level and has been involved in many projects at the Centre for Health Economic Research and Modeling Infectious Diseases (CHERMID). In the philosophy of engaging in interdisciplinary research, his work has a particular focus on model exploration, parameter estimation, social contact patterns and computational efficiency. He is principal investigator of an individual-based model, called STRIDE, to study the interaction between adaptive individual behavior and close-contact disease transmission.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
