Dr Robert Dünner
BRCCH Consortium Member
Robert Dünner is a senior scientific collaborator at Swiss TPH since October 2020. For the BRCCH consortium he works on developing an agent-based model of the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic in Switzerland. This model will be combined with a machine learning approach to investigate optimal properties and delivery strategies of pharmaceutical interventions, including but not limited to, vaccines. Robert Dünner has a PhD from ETH Zürich, where he developed an agent-based model of negative-frequency dependent host-parasite coevolution and used it to investigate the influence of hierarchical metapopulation structure on the maintenance of genetic diversity.
