Erin Coughlan de Perez co-authored an article in the IJF on epidemiological and meteorological forecasting
Erin Coughlan de Perez brought together several people who work in epidemiological and meteorological forecasting to reflect on how these two communities can learn from one another when it comes to predictive modeling and policy making. The article, titled, “Epidemiological versus meteorological forecasts: Best practice for linking models to policymaking,” emphasizes how the two fields of research developed forecasting methodologies independently from one another, even though they tend to aim for similar objectives. Each field can borrow certain methods from each other, as the article proposes, in order to enhance usefulness during crises. This article was published in the International Journal of Forecasting (IJF).
