With new outbreaks of illness around the globe (think zika virus and even the common cold), forecasting the potential spread of infection has become even more important. Come by for a brief introduction to the subject of disease forecasting and how new social media tools are helping make predictions even more accurate. The short presentation will be followed by a lively discussion. Our presentor is Nick Generous of the Lab’s Information Systems and Modeling group.

Science on Tap is a convivial opportunity to engage with Lab scientists on their current projects. A brief presentation is followed by lively questions, answers and discussion. The fun takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Plaza in Los Alamos.

The sessions are a joint project between the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District.
