Research Interests & Projects
- Marisa Eisenberg's research is in mathematical biology, and is centered around using and developing parameter estimation and identifiability techniques to connect math models and disease data. Her recent research has been primarily in modeling infectious diseases, particularly examining cholera and waterborne disease. She has also developed models of cancer and endocrine disorders. Some current areas of interest include: parameter identifiability and estimation, infectious diseases, cholera and waterborne diseases, cancer modeling, global health, networks and complexity.
