In this talk we will discuss epidemic modeling in the context of COVID-19. We will review the basics of classical epidemic models, and present joint work with Maria Chikina on the use of age-targeted strategies in the context of a COVID-19-like epidemic. We will also discuss the broader roles epidemic modeling has played over the past year, and the limitations it as presented as a primary lens through which to understand the pandemic.
